Three late C20 casements to first floor, centre and right with gables breaking eaves and one to centre on ground floor to right of C19 boarded door. One early C19 leaded casement survives to rear. Former roof line visible to left gable end, which has late C20 red brick top to integral rubblestone end stack, the width of which is indicated by stone to front wall.
