Two storeys; 5 windows. Painted brick in Sussex bond. Irregular fenestration, including original first floor C18 Lumley Mill casement to right. Other windows are early C20 casements.

A local tradition is that the ornamental crenellated wall was built by French prisoners of war during the Napoleonic Wars.
