Stair turret on rear wall at lower end of hall. Outbuilding possibly a store with loft above added to higher end. Rear doorway of through passage blocked. A second front door inserted into front wall of hall. Disturbed masonry at lower end wall of shippon suggests heightening of eaves. Straight joint between house and shippon suggests rebuilding of shippon. Two storey house and regular four window range with one window to outbuilding at higher left hand end and shippon at lower right hand end. All C20 casements mostly with glazing bars, ground floor right of centre and first floor right without glazing bars. Ground floor windows and doorways have granite lintels.

Rear: stair turret to left of centre with window to left in passage rear doorway. Left hand external stone stairs to loft over shippon with double doors and slated canopy. Ventilation slit low down in rear wall of shippon and another higher in gable end. Disturbed masonry in gable end suggest eaves heightening.

The lower end half beam is over blocked fireplace and the higher end half beam is unchamfered on inner room side and was originally over a partition which has been removed. Former inner room and half fireplaces blocked with C20 grates. Passage has beam (possibly half beam) against back of stack, chamfered with hollow step stops.
