Above, an inscribed plaque with initials ID, EP, IP, WR, ER and date. Flanking 4-pane late C19/early C20 windows. 3 rubble gabled dormers to upper floor with similar glazing. Later extension to L with corrugated iron roof. To rear, 2 small casement windows to R as before and a further, modern window. Pebbledashed R gable.

Interior

Not seen on inspection, but reported as retaining original layout, with stop-chamfered ceiling beams and joists, large fire-place with bressumer carried on rough stone corbels, and a good post and panel partition to first floor.
