Graduated greenslate roof with 3-boxed dormer windows; stucco ridge and end chimney stacks. 2 storeys, 5 bays, with a 4-bay return on Church Lane; central stair, double-depth plan. Central 3 bays project and are pilastered; central panelled door in prostyle Corinthian porch with swag ornament, entablature and cornice. All windows are sashes with glazing bars in stone architraves; further left pilastered doorway. INTERIOR has much original detail with some careful C20 additions in C18 style; panelled internal shutters and panelled doors in fluted architraves. Simple moulded plaster ceiling cornices in principal rooms with some original cast-iron fireplaces in fluted surrounds. Small dog-leg stair is C18 with carved tread-ends, squared balusters and moulded wooden handrail. Further servants staircase is probably C19. On the OS map the Church Lane return is shown as Mulcaster Cottage but this is now all one house. Built partly over the south ditch of the Stanwix Roman fort.
