Over the dormer, 2 corbels carry a 1 timbered gable. Right of this window is a canted wood mullioned bay window and another gabled dormer above. Dormers to left of elevation have catslide roofs. Coped gables - 2 gables and one axial old brick stacks. To the right of the house is a half hipped and catslide roofed outshut with pantiled roof and a tiny upper window.
