There are 5 segmental-headed windows on the 1st floor with architrave frames, moulded brick cills and small raised aprons, the centre window in the projecting bay had a bolection moulded brick architrave. There are 4 similar windows without cills on the ground floor, and an 8-panelled central door in segmental-headed architrave frame. The carved brick doorcase has engaged Doric columns with egg and tongue caps supporting an entablature the architrave of which is arched over the door-head with a projecting key block carried up through the frieze with the cornice breaking forward in a curved projection. The frieze is fluted over the columns and the cornice is moulded and denticualted. The whole entablature bows forward over the columns. There is a plain brick extension to the left hand with an old tiled roof and 2 windows on the 1st and ground floors. To the right hand there is 1 plain bay of the same design as the main front but with a moulded string at cornice level. The south front is of similar design with 4 similar windows and central panelled chimney with the parapet swept up on either side. The main front is set back with lime trees along the road. It has had rails but these have been removed. Weybourne House was the home of J H Knight, the Inventor.
