The doorway in the 3rd bay (approached by 3 steps with nosings, the 2nd step with boot-scrapers) has a plain stone surround with panelled reveals, and a recessed panelled door with egg-and-dart decoration to the lintel and a plain rectangular overlight. The windows are sashed without glazing bars, those at ground floor with panelled aprons, those at 1st floor with cornices on consoles, and those at 2nd floor square, with raised sills. Hipped roof with 2 receding ridges, one chimney at the right-hand side. Rear: 2-storey wing attached to right-hand corner, with wagon archway through to rear courtyard.
