coursed freestone With ashlar dressings. Mainly of 2 storeys, with many gables.
Five-bay south front has central projecting battlemented square tower whose 4 angle
turrets have hat-shaped caps; and an oriel with perpendicular tracery. Other windows
are stone mullioned and transomed, some Tudor arched with dripmoulds; and some
have glazing with margin lights. Elm Court has a range of colonnades, with polished
granite columns (some paired) and elliptical arches, stretching south-eastwards
and ending in an open grotto or artifical ruin with artfully disposed rough rocks
