Subsidiary features: projecting north from NW corner, and returned eastwards along the south front (and enclosing a small garden area) is a stone-coped dwarf wall with spearheaded railings and double gates adjoining NW ashlar gate pier.

A fine example of a mid Victorian gate lodge, distinguished by its studied asymmetry and quality detailing, and associated railings and gates.
