One-storey, 2-window range front. Entry to gazebo from terrace flanked by halved
apses with entry to closet on right and stairs on left: gauged brick flat arches
over central 8-panelled door and late C19 single-light casements in outer bays:

9-pane sashes and blind window to right: splayed stone stair-light to left.
Carved cornice. Interior: cockpit has quarry tile floor and domed brick ceiling;

terrace has stone-coped walls of random bond brick, and stone rubble finished in

Stone steps with stone coped ramp and pier descends to fine wrought-iron gates
with crested overthrow arch: L-shaped wall of chequer brick, returned to house

that the terrace originally overlooked a formal garden, probably a parterre, to
the west.
