gable stacks. Double-depth plan. Mid-Georgian style. 3 storeys. Symmetrical
7-window front, with full-height clasping pilasters linked by storeybands and a
parapet with moulded cornice, has 12-pane sashes with projecting keyblocks, and
a central doorway with flanking pilasters supporting a scrolled pediment
enclosing a cartouche. The front is considerably wider than the house and breaks
back to double-gabled end walls, the right side with an early-C19 stone Tuscan
porch. All gables have triple-shafted stacks with moulded plinths and caps. Rear
has stone-mullioned cellar windows with labels. Interior not inspected but noted
as having early moulded doorframes in the cellar, mid-C18 panelling in a
first-floor room, and other fittings of c.1800,
