Rendered; hipped thatched roof which overhangs and sweeps down to form a pentice which is supported on arch braced rustic timber piers thus forming an 'umbrello'; ashlar stack. Gothick cottage orne. Single storey and attics in dormers which are cut out of the thatch. 4 windows and central door on ground floor, single window to each elevation in the attic; 3- and 2-light casements with depressed ogee headed tracery and diamond and square lead glazing patterns. Central door with depressed ogee headed tracery; two taller timber uprights of the pentice form a porch with a thatched roof set below the attic window.
