with 2 storeys and gable over. The porch has a flat archway and enriched cornice
with cartouche above. Casement windows of 2 lights with stone mullions and transoms.
Chimney breasts at each end of the front and behind with red brick stacks. The
south east wing has one gable and a gable end facing south east. Parallel to this
wing is an C18 wing of ashlar with red brick dressings and sash windows with glazing
bars intact and doorway with rectangular fanlight. This has 2 storeys and attic,
3 windows and 2 dormers. At the south west end it was prolonged by Sir Ernest
George when the house was restored in 1905. Goad early C17 staircase and panelling.
The house was the home of Viscount Milner at the end of his life.
