First floor, one 3-light 6x3 panes, one 2-light 4x3 panes, central one single light 2x2 panes. Service addition has 2-light casement window with glazing bars, 4x3 panes.

The house underwent extensive repairs after war damage, at which time a number of windows were replaced by those with iron frames. These have been systematically replaced by PVC casements with glazing bars. INTERIOR: essentially plain. Staircase has slender shaped handrail. 2 lamb's tongue chamfer stopped binding joists in the cellar and the existence of interior studding to the front wall imply an earlier timber-framed origin in the C17, only fragments now remaining.
