Asymmetrical 3 window front of circa late C19 6-pane sashes except for 3-light C20 casement to left on ground floor. C20 part glazed to left and C20 panelled door to right of centre. Interior: most early features concealed by later modernisation. One rough beam is visible in the lower room; there is reputed to be a blocked staircase next to its fireplace. 2 early C18 fielded 2-panel doors survive.
