Irregular 4- window front comprising C20 wooden casements of various sizes with late C18 6-panel door at left end to passage. Hall section breaks forward slightly from main block. Very small service end result of truncation of this end. Roof is largely inaccessible but smoke-blackening over passage and service end suggests an early C16 low partition house with an open hearth fire.

Passage-service end chamber jettied into hall with first floor low plank-and-muntin screen below plastered framing.
