projecting window at left hand end of elevation, with a French window and a
3-light casement to the middle bay. 3 upper casement windows and a dormer with
glazed gablet. Gable end and 1 axial stack, which projects through the slope
of the roof, rather than from the ridge. In the right hand gable wall, part

partition walls. Wall plate and main trusses and partitions visible upstairs.
