Country house. Early/mid C18. Flemish bond brick with ashlar dressings and a slate roof. Three-storeyed central block with single storey wings which terminate in 2-storey pavilions. L-shaped plan. Garden front: The central block is of 3 bays symmetrically disposed. To the centre at ground and first floor levels are Venetian windows with ashlar surrounds and to the second floor is a tripartite window with a steep pediment above the central light, resting on moulded brackets. To either side are canted bay windows which have stone bands at the level of the sills of the first and second-floor windows. These windows are of 3 x 4 panes to the ground and first floors and of 3 x 3 panes to the second floor, all the windows having flat arched heads with projecting keystones. To the top of the wall is an ashlar cornice above which is a panelled parapet of brick which has an ashlar coping with ball finials to the corners and at centre. To either side and slightly recessed are the single storey wings of three bays each and having round-arched windows with projecting springers and keystone and a doorway at right of the left hand wing. To the centre of each wing is a slightly projecting bay with pilaster strips to either side supporting an open pediment. The pavilions which project slightly have Venetian windows to the ground floor and lunettes above which cut into the pedimental gables which have ashlar surrounds. To the apex of the pavilion roofs are circular lanterns which have ogee-domed roofs of lead and wrought iron weathercocks to the apexes. The central block has two chimney stacks to either side symmetrically disposed, which are of brick with ashlar capping. The rear has a projecting gabled wing at right which has a C20 lean-to to the ground floor and two blocked windows having flat arched heads with projecting keystones. This wing has one pilaster buttress at left. To left of this is the recessed portion and in the re-entrant angle of the L-shape thus formed and cutting across it at 45 degrees is a portion of walling which has to ground floor level a doorway with ashlar surround with an open pediment supported by brackets which are in turn supported by clusters of shafts. The door is of 6 raised and fielded panels with lateral lights which have intersecting glazing bars to the upper panes. To either side are further clustered shafts and above the windows are extended volutes with rinceau ornament. Above this at first floor level is a further window of 3 x 4 panes with an ashlar surround and above this a further similar window of 3 x 3 panes. Above this and projecting into the parapet is a segmental pediment supported on brackets. To either side of this at ground floor level are two bays housing windows of 4 x 4 panes with flat-arched heads with central keystones and there are similar windows to the first and second floors, the latter being of 3 x 4 panes.
