Country house, derelict at time of survey. 1856. By John Norton for W H Sitwell. Red brick with stone dressings and slate roofs with ornamental brick ridge, end and side stacks with decorated flues, some in clusters. Jacobean style with stone mullion windows and Dutch gables.

Entrance front has three-storey tower with doorway enriched with Doric pilasters and frieze, two-light window above, bracketed cornice, and open belvedere with parapet and ogee roof, further windows to either side. Garden front is a five-window range with projecting end gables and two-storey canted bays; central doorway with oriel over. Side is an asymmetrical design with projecting gable, side stacks and oriels to first floor.
Attached to the entrance front by a covered way are the stables of one and two storeys in similar style. U-plan with central carriage arch and clock tower above, with open square lantern and ogee roof, echoing the house belvedere.
