hanging davits on the front wall. Two storey house with roughcast walls and
slate roofs, with wide bracketed eaves and battered stacks. The main elevation
faces North East;- the seaward elevation is set on a curve and attached to symmetrical
quadrant wings, extending seawards. In the North East elevation, the central bridge
room, with pyramidal roof and shallow, horizontal multi-mullioned window strip at
eaves level, is sited above the pedimented entrance wing with cored soffit to
pediment, two windows to the upper floor and horsehoe shaped entrance arch below;
battered polygonal "lighthouse" tower adjoins on North East, with single-light
windows below and polygonal horizontal window strip at eaves level beneath polygonal
roof. Rectangular two storey projection to North West with two two-light casements
in front wall and modern window replacements in the return; attached to this on
North East is a semi-circular two-storey tower with single-light windows and wide
bracketed eaves. In seaward elevation, terrace wall with portholes and flight of
steps atEast, set in front of upper floor with sash windows and doorways, and central
rectangular bridge room wing, the horizontal windows strip at eaves level set above
a central doorway in arcading and flanking sash windows. The flanking wings, formerly
open-sided, have been blocked in with earlier to mid C20 windows, but terminating
in taller end pavilions with pyramidally hipped roof.
