Rear wing slightly set back, and with single- storey lean-to in angle: 2 first-floor windows; quoins to right; above the lean-to, first-floor 8-pane sash window; to right, on each floor a sash window with glazing bars, of 8 panes on first floor, in bolection section ashlar architraves; stone slate roof; shaped kneeler to right, ashlar. coping; corniced ashlar stack over large chimney to right. Rear of wing: small light vent and single-light window in chamfered surround, both on first floor. Gable end of wing: blocked window in gable. The house is known locally as Priest House, because of a tradition that it is the oldest house in the area and formerly contained priest holes: certainly the house appears to be one of the earliest in the area. The evolution may be of a late C17 south range, with an early C18 rear range, the south range heightened in the mid or late C18.
