Similar, 2-light, attic windows, in each gable. 2 hipped roof dormers with casement windows. Chamfered plinth and raised band between floors. Ashlar gable parapets and kneelers. Ashlar ridge stacks have moulded cornices; the left stack is rendered. Lozenge shape datestone in left gable, similar blank panel in right gable. Elevation to right has a 3-light stone mullion window to first floor, with a C20 doorway below, which has a re-used moulded stone surround. Elevation to left has casement windows with wood lintels. Rear elevation has central, gabled, stair turret and Cl9 single-storey extensions flanking. Interior: C17 staircase, with half landing, has turned balustrade and panelled newels with ball finials. The entrance hall and drawing room, to right, have C17 bolection moulded panelling with matching wooden fireplace surrounds. The dining room and the kitchen, to the left of the entrance hall, both have remains of open fireplaces. Stop-chamfered spine beams.
