Former house now offices. Dated and inscribed over entrance R. & L.B. 1686 (Rolland Barrow, Rector of Brougham, and his wife.) Painted rendered walls,with eaves cornice and raised quoins, on chamfered plinth; all dressings of grey-pink sandstone. Graduated greenslate roof with C20 red sandstone chimney stacks. 2 storeys and attic, 5 bays. Central projecting enclosed stone porch has raised quoins and open balustraded balcony above; C20 double doors in stone architrave with dated lintel. Above was a first-floor balcony door in bolection architrave with frieze (inscribed 1977, the date of restoration) under swan-necked pediment on scrolled brackets, now filled with a C20 cross-mullioned window. Large 2-light flat stone-mullioned windows, in architraves showing signs of the removed transoms; cornice over. Smaller 2-light attic windows. Left return wall has small stone-surround windows, larger 2-light window and a C19 attic window. Right return wall and rear have nearly all the original cross-mullioned windows complete. The interior has many original features despite having been subdivided. Late C17 oak staircase with barley-twist balusters and heavy moulded handrail. Segmental-arched stone fireplace in front room beside a spiral stone staircase which suggests that part of the earlier house has been incorporated. See RCHM, Westmorland, 1936, p.252 and field notes for same by John Charlton, 20 October 1934. C20 additions to right and rear are not of special interest.
