EXTERIOR: principal block, S front elevation, red brick,
Flemish bond with a considerable number of burnt headers.
Symmetrical 3 bays, 2 storey and attic. Window frames flush.
Ground floor, 2 sash windows with central door. Window
apertures simple segment heads and sashes with glazing bars,
4x4 panes. Doorway has pediment on console brackets and frieze

lower 4 have projecting mouldings. First floor, 3 sash windows
with glazing bars, 4x4 panes. Attic, two C20 flat headed
dormers replacing older panes, 2 stacks, one in each end
gable. C19 extension to E, timber-framed, weatherboarded with
pantiled roof hipped at E end. Ground floor, two C20 double
leaved garage doors. First floor, one fixed window with
glazing bars, 3x3 panes. E end elevation weatherboarded, one
ground-floor single light window, one first-floor 2-light
window. Rear N elevation. Brick with burnt headers, English
bond, rendered with central projecting addition - some yellow
brick, first floor weatherboarded, hipped, glazed pantiled
roof, central C19 stack at N end. C20 lean-to in E angle
between house and C19 projection. C20 lean-to conservatory on
W side of C18 projection. Ground floor, two C20 metal casement

2 glazed. To E 3-light fixed window. End walls of main house
show straight jointing in gables between stacks and rest of
gable wall. Also straight pitched lines of headers behind
mansard roof `crank'. This suggests that the mansard was
probably a later early C19 alteration of a simple pitched
roof. Bonding system of brickwork changes from Flemish to
English across both gable end walls from front to back.
INTERIOR: evidence not visible. Staircase rises from front to
back with earlier C18 shaped handrail. Internal shutters
remain in the front windows. One upstairs fireplace with Art
Nouveau surround and grate hood.
Haylands (qv), Little Oakhurst (qv) and Nunns form a group.
