stone dressings and tiled roof. Four stacks (one on ridge) with large corbelled

to crosswing; each surmounted by small pediment. Two dormers break through
eaves of main part. Fenestration, all modern casements set in stone surrounds
under hoodmoulds, but some of stonework, and windows, likely to be C19 additions.
Original stone doorcase with lintel and datestone. Higher rear wing of
3½ storeys wutith similar fenestration, lower 2 storey wing adjoins this.
Interior: Early Cl8 staircase with turned balusters on solid string. Some
