C18, early C19. A severely-plain classical house of symmetrical form, 2 storeys
and cellar (exposed as 3 storeys in the lower service part at the south side): the
older central block has wings of the later date. The main (west, formerly entrance)
front has 7 windows, with set-back, slightly lower, wings of 1.1 windows. Hipped
slate roof, masked by a balustraded parapet. The brick structure is faced with thin
slabs of Bath stone, finely wrought to appear jointless; cornice, cills, plinth, a
2-storeyed blind arch to the inner face of each wing. Sashes in reveals. Porch of
Portland stone in the Ionic Order, with coupled columns in front of coupled
pilasters, an arched doorway with a decorative fanlight, and double doors.
Projecting forward at each side is a curved flanking wall, with a niche and pedestal,
turning parallel to the front and ending in a pillar, surmounted by a lead urn.
The east (now entrance) elevation has 5 windows, the wings (of 2 and 3 bays but of
equal extent) forming a U-shape; with similar details there is a plainer porch, and
6-panelled door beneath an arched fanlight. The north elevation (to the wing) has
5 bays, all blank except for the 3 middle French windows, which have arched heads
linked by a thin impost band. The lower service yard has a single-storeyed forward
extension (ie cellar level) and an entrance on the west side leading to a passageway
covered by quadripartite brick vaulting.
