C20 leanto added along rear wall. Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 3-window front of C20 1 and 2-light casements without glazing bars. Large late C20 conservatory/porch along centre of front wall.

The central room has rough closely spaced ceiling beams. An original chamfered wooden doorframe with peaked head leads from the central room to the left-hand one. Visible on the 1st floor are the feet of substantial straight principal rafters which may be C17 but further examination was prevented by lack of access to the roof space at time of inspection.
