A tall brick house of circa 1700 with an earlier timber-framed wing of uncertain date to the east. Two storeys and dormers, colour-washed brick. Five early C18 sashed windows with flush cased frames and thick glazing bars, each with 18 lights. Fine central doorcase with elaborate shell hood on richly carved console brackets, wreathed pulvinated frieze; the doorcase now frames an-early sash window. Wood modillioned eaves cornice. Three flat-topped sashed dormers. Tall half-hipped roof. Wing of 2 storeys, timber-framed rendered; two 3-light windows with pointed lights like those of The Old Anchor (qv), lower window with flat cornice top. In eastern bay projecting 2 storey porch with a window of 2 pointed lights, over the entrance, segmental headed porch opening, old 2-panel door. Old tile roof. Eastern return of main block with simple door, having a C18 hood on brackets. Rear of house somewhat similar to front, main block with central doorway with flat hood on carved brackets. Five sash windows but no dormers. Virtually complete original interior, fully panelled to ground and first floor (bolection moulded panelling to rear rooms at both levels). Rich cornices throughout.
