Cornice moulding differs from that to right, but is continued over one-window range to left, rendered with sash above and French window below. Attached at east end is a large c1900 ashlar-fronted 2-storey range with balustrade, centre pediment and broad timber mullion window each floor. Attached to west end is long and much altered range, possibly formerly a drying shed as there are ashlar piers now infilled between. Sash windows. Left end has rough boarding over front.
