Below these windows at ground floor 2 C18 windows, sashes with glazing bars and exposed frames. To the left a C17 projecting gabled porch, semi-circular stone arch with moulded arch rings and imposts. The left-hand section of the front breaks forward and has two 3-light casement windows with leaded lights. The interior has been much altered, but rear bedroom retains a plaster ceiling with design of thin moulded ribs in a geometric pattern with Tudor roses and thistles, late C17 fireplace with bolection moulding.
