The walls are about 3 metres high, varied with the slope of the ground, in banded

metres high with pyramidal caps; the southern entrance has trompe l'oeil piers of
rhomboid plan about 4 metres high, in rubble with ball finial on shaped stem. North

The stable block is of 2 storeys, with 8 windows at first floor, all of 3 lights,

carriage entrances with double doors and louvres under segmental brick heads with
keystones, 2-light and 3-light window with segmental head and keystone; to the right
of the external stair, a 3-light window and 2 further carriage entries. To end right
a 3-light window. The stable block is in banded rubble, with eaves cornice and
granite quoins, with clock cupola, slate-hung, with ogee lead roof and weathervane,
clock dated 1870. Right side of stable has segmental-headed door with shield of arms
set over, two 3-light casements with flat brick heads under eaves. Left side has 2-
storey lean-to with door and single storey lean-to with door with cambered brick
head. Rear has 4 brick stacks, 12 casements at first floor with cambered brick heads
at varied levels; single storey lean-to to centre and to right. The stable block is
attached to the rear of the forecourt buildings by a banded rubble wall about 2½
metres high and about 10 metres long, with rubble coping.
The barn is of 2 storeys with hayloft, in banded rubble with hipped slate roof;
external stair leads to porch with hipped roof, 2-light casement right and left at
first floor, with glazing bars. Left side has cart entry and similar 2-light

The range of outbuildings is of later C19, in random rubble, with slate roofs. 2
storeys, and with 3 wings projecting to front, 2 with gable end cart entries.
Building to end right was formerly smithy, and has rubble stack, door and 3-light
window. Main range has 3 C20 doors.
There appears to have been a phase of estate building in banded rubble, as at
Ferryman's Cottage at Jupiter Point (q.v.), probably slightly later than those
buildings in brick.
