Country house, now old people's home. Mid C18 with C17 wings at rear.
Coursed, dressed stone with ashlar dressings. Stone slate roof. Two
storeys. L-shape plan with wings and infill at rear. 7-bay symmetrical
facade. Rusticated quoins. Central doorway whose eared architrave and
console-supported open segmental pediment, have been brought forward to form
a stone porch. 12-pane sash windows in moulded architraves. Aprons of
first-floor windows extend to band above ground-floor windows. Moulded eaves
cornice and blocking course. Hipped roof. Rusticated ashlar ridge stacks.
Right return is similar but slightly plainer. The doorway has eared
architrave, cornice on console brackets and overlight with radial glazing.
Rear: C17 wing at right side, altered on its outer side but retaining
several cross-windows to upper floor on the inner side. Hollow-chamfered
gable copings on moulded kneelers. Shorter rear wings, with hipped roofs,
also retain traces of early openings.

Interior: The central room, formerly the hall, is panelled, the panelling
said to be from Cannon Hall. At the back of the hall two Doric columns
support the landing of the excellent, dog-leg, open staircase, which has
gadrooned, tapering balusters (2 per tread), ramped and moulded handrail and
panelled dado.
