House, c 1875. Finely coursed gritstone with ashlar dressings. Slate roofs
with ridge cresting. Tower roof with bands of fishscale slates and four
lucarnes. Stone coped shaped gables (no two alike) with finials. Two gable end
stacks and two eaves stacks, one with external stack rising from the ground and
one rising from a gable above a window. Double pile plan with projecting tower
to the west. Two storeys plus the tower. Asymmetrical elevations. East
elevation has a central porch with shallow pointed arch and dripmould with
headstops beneath a shaped gable. To the left a slightly advanced gabled bay
with angle quoins. Castellated canted bay window to ground floor, the centre
light with mullion and transom. First floor window with mullion and transom,
horizontal drip mould above with stops. Shallow pitched pointed arched single
light window in the gable. Above the porch a tall single light window with
transom. To the right a 3-light mullioned and transomed window to the ground
floor, a similar but smaller one above and a single light dormer window above with
shaped gable. The west tower is square on plan but in its upper parts with the
angles chamfered and with stops, rising to four shaped gables. Recessed pyramidal
roof with a whimsical gableted chimney stack squeezed into the south-west corner.
Flat elongated hexagonal windows at half height, and a C19 wooden porch abutting
at the base. The house was built by the Manchester Corporation.
