Plain bargeboard to NW gable.

Adjoining to the rear and raised up against the steep incline of the hill, a small late C19 addition forming a double-pile with the earlier house. Pebble-dashed with plain brick stack to the rear
and a simple 12-pane canted bay window to the NW. Plain bargeboard to the gable. Rubble-walled garden to the rear bordering the
curve of the lane to the NE.
