Three windows at ground floor including two tripartite hung sashes c.1930, and an original hung sash window opening. Off-centre doorway with early C19 reeded doorcase and flat hood. Above the front door is a brick inscribed 1723. Right hand gable end has red brick diaper work and a blocked 1723 window opening. The kitchen wing has some earlier brickwork but is mostly C19. Interior: There are opposing front and rear doorways and an early C19 staircase screen with similar detail to the doorcase. The open-well staircase is 1723 and of two flights and a landing. Urn shaped balusters with toads back rail, and larger similar balusters to the newels. There is no evidence for hearths in the gable ends at either ground or first floor.
