fenestration altered late C20 and containing a number of brought-in
features of interest. Rendered with grey slate roofs. Mildly Gothick

with flush central gable and projecting wing gables linked by a
verandah. Gothick double doors with cross-casement over. Late C20
square bay windows to lower storey of wings, with balconies above in
front of oak French windows to bedrooms. An attached cottage forms a
recessed lower wing right.
Interior Central full-height hall has richly carved doors of oak

stair right, with winders, and stick balusters, leading to gallery with
