red brick dressings. Stringcourse of red brick and grey headers. Wooden
cornice with modillions. Hipped slate roof with lead ridges. Doorway with
Doric columns and pediment set in the thickness of the garden wall and no doubt
originally a porch but this now leads into the passage connecting the house
with the billiard room. The main front faces the garden on the South. It
has a large bay of 3 windows on the 1st floor supported by Doric columns below,
behind which is the ground floor doorway with Doric pilasters and pediment.
The door is modern. Above the cornice of the bay is a wooden-balustraded
parapet and large dormer window with brick work on either side of it and
pediment over. 1 ordinary dormer on either side of it. The East front
has 3 bays of 3 windows each, 1 fronted with red brick, the others re-
fronted with roughcast. The wing to the North has a 1st floor which is
largely modern but the ground floor is earlier than the main part of the
house. A billiard room of ground floor level onlywas added at the South-
west corner of the house at the end of the C19 and has been joined to the
main part of the house by a corridor with a balustraded roof.
