The hall is heated from a rear lateral stack, and the inner room, to left, is heated end; formerly single storey and raised in height in C20. An entrance was made directly into the room to left, when the house was divided. In mid C20, additions were made to the rear, with a stair. Exterior: 2 storeys, asymmetrical 2-window front. To right, a C20 thatched and gabled porch with half-glazed stable door. Ground and first floor to right have a C20 2-light casement. Ground floor left a 2-light 6-pane C19 casement, first floor left a 2-light 6-pane casement. To left, the former roofline of the outshut is visible with 6-pane light at ground floor. The outshut has been raised to 2 storeys, with open area at the left side; C20 casements running around the corner of the house at first floor. 2-storey addition to left with casements at ground and first floor. At the rear, the C20 additions are 2-storey with four large gabled dormers with casements. Ground floor left single storey C20 addition. Interior: The ground floor room to right has a rear lateral fireplace, rebuilt in C20; C19 beams. Blocked doorway to right, formerly leading to the passage.
