The right-of-centre seven-panel door (three panels to the base, glazed to the top) is under a projecting porch of slender columns with entasis and round caps which support a flat 20th century roof. It is flanked on both floors by 20th century eight-over-eight-pane sash windows. Interior: the left-hand ground-floor room has a chamfered crossbeam resting on the lintel of the window and a recess of a former door in the left return. The room to the right has a similarly-positioned boxed-in beam. To the centre rear is an early 19th century semi-elliptical arch with reeded moulding, possibly a former recess, now access to the 20th century kitchen.
