hinges and handle). Service wing (truncated), right; east front
(left) symmetrical, with cone-roofed corner turrets on battered
plinths; south (garden) front has two projecting, shaped gables.
Shaped stone-dressed mullioned and transomed windows with metal
casements; leaded glazing survives on entrance front and in some upper
windows.

Interior: Massive open well newel staircase of oak; oak overmantel
(hall); moulded plaster ceiling and hardwood fireplace surround
