Graduated slate roof with brick end chimneys. 2-storey, 2-bay front has 2 stone
mullioned 3-light windows and a fire window to ground floor; 2 later sashes
above have glazing bars and stone surrounds. Range linking this part of
building to later house incorporates original cross-passage door with dated
lintel. Main house is late C18/early C19. Flemish bond brickwork with
rusticated quoins; plinth and eaves are both of moulded stone. Welsh slate roof
has stone copings and corniced end chimneys. Symmetrical 2-storey, 5-bay front

Internally, extensive repairs and renovation have restored much of the original
appearance of the interior.
