House. Mid C18, with mid C19 additions to form a lower service wing. Walls of
brickwork in Flemish bond, plinth, lst floor band, rubbed flat arches, parapet
with stone coping and stucco modillion cornice: plain service wing. Hipped tile
roof, flat-roofed dormers. Symmetrical west front elevation with full-height
splayed bays at each side; two storeys and attic, 3.1.3 windows, with C19 south
wing of two storeys, 2.1 windows. Victorian sashes in reveals. Stucco doorcase
of Tuscan or plain Doric Order, with pediment, pilasters, architrave, and 6-
panelled (2 top glazed) door: the slightly-projecting south end of the wing,
has a ground-floor Venetian window. The rear (east) elevation of the main block
is symmetrical, of two storeys attic and basement, 5 windows, with similar
details and a plainer doorway, having a pediment on brackets and half-glazed
door. The drop in ground is marked by a flight of steps (from the doorway),
which turns in each direction at half level: this is a stone structure of the mid
C19, of classical and rich ornament, including bulbous piers and pierced parapet.
The service wing is less regular, with the ground-floor part of the earlier date.
There are minor extensions at the north and south ends. A brick in the north
chimney is incised I.M.1767.
