First floor N-S, 4 identical windows. Attic, 3 hipped dormers set between the windows below with C20 casement windows of 2 lights, 4x2 panes. S elevation pebble dash rendered, roof hipped to E, simple gable with stack to W, C18 single-storey continuation to W and further C19 and C20 single storey blocks attached. Ground floor E-W, C20 3-light casement window, C20 porch of timber and brick, peg-tiled gable with waney edge boarding and side lights with glazing bars, 4x3 panes, door of 2 leaves, each glazed, 2x3 panes. In C18 addition sash window with glazing bars, 4x4 panes. First floor, C18 sash window with glazing bars, 4x4 panes. Attic hipped dormer with 2-light C20 casement window. N side elevation pebble dash rendered, hipped roof, 2 window range C18 sashes as front, lower pair have small cyma moulded hoods. Rear W elevation wings with central out-shut.

C20 flat roofed dormer projects from out-shut roof with 2-light metal casement window with transom. No other windows except in C18 addition, sash with glazing bars, 3x3 panes. INTERIOR: considerably re-worked in earlier C20. Rear out-shut converted to through corridor leading to doorway on S elevation. Extensive contemporary panelling on ground floor. Room divisions removed and fireplaces rebuilt. S 2 bayed wing has central posts and tie-beam with lamb's tongue chamfer stops on first floor. Attics have butt side purlin construction in main range and S wing. Also small C17 bricks of stack evident at this level. Irregularity of attic floor framing suggests that stair originally rose directly behind the stack. The house of early C17, 3-celled origin with S wing and rear out-shut probably contemporary. The shape of the roof of N wing suggests that later alteration was intended to create a 2 storey, double depth house with hipped roofs all round, only part of which was completed. Instead, various single storey additions were constructed on the S wing. (RCHM: Central and SW Essex : South Weald : Monument 15).
