Alterations to the main house and addition of advanced north and south wings 1910-13 by Sir E Lutyens: a continuation of the Archer style and to a plan close to Archer's original intentions. The Lutyens parts would in themselves merit Grade II*. See Vitruvius Britannicus Vol 1 for original plan and elevation. Three-storeys and basement.

[Centre Block: Entrance Front (West)] Moulded brick bands between storeys. Plain brick pilasters. Brick rustications to angles and to three-window centre projection. Main cornice below brick parapet, except to three-window centre which has stone cornice and balustrade. Semi- recessed windows with red gauged flat arches, dressings, projecting brick keyblocks and shaped aprons. Stone central feature comprising entrance flanked by Doric pilasters supporting entablature and broken segmental pediment, and semi-circular-headed window at first floor flanked by fluted Corinthian pilasters. Entrance approached by 2 flights of steps with wrought iron ornamental balustrade. One-storey quadrant brick arcades at angles of block. Above the arcades the quadrants and wings by Lutyens. Linked to them on north and south sides of front courtyard 2-storey seven-window pavilions with three-window advanced centres, also by Lutyens. [Centre Block: Garden Front (East)] Similar to west front but with window in place of entrance door and niche in place of window above.
