Later C20 single-storey extension on north corner. Neo-Georgian style. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys. The centre bays of three of the elevations have deeply overhanging bracketed eaves, while the broad turret-like corners are blind and have parapets with moulded cornices. South east front has 3-bay centre with 12-pane sashes, the first floor in moulded architraves, the ground floor with low round-arched `Diocletion` doorway with side-lights and keystone rising through the first floor band above; large stone canted bay window on left. NE elevation is similar, but narrower, composition, the left corner `turret` is broader and has slightly recessed corner.
