inials. Three tall internal stalks, the outer ones having
recessed centre panels and all with moulded stone cornices to
entablatures. Symmetrical plan of single range having lower
flanking wings projecting as crosswings on the north side.
Lower adjoining service wings to the east. Two storeys and

one segmental dormer, all with leaded lights. Range of flush
frame hung sashes with half round moulded glazing bars and open
boxing. Pedimented central doorway with doorcase of pilasters
with pulvinated frieze. Above and forming a single composition
with the doorway is a larger, similar hung sash with a swept

brick band and bulls eye windows with leaded lights. The south
side to the garden has two, two-storey canted bays flanking
three similar hung sashes, the ground floor ones in segmental
arches. Three hipped dormers in the roof, flanked by original
oval, glazed panels. The wings have one tripartite hung sash to
each storey except for the right hand wing which has a loggia.
Adjoining to the east is an original garden wall, shaped and in
three bays with part red brick piers and tiled coping.
Interior: Most of the details from the original house have
remained intact, including the fireplace surrounds on the ground
floor and the staircase with its turned balusters and large
single, twisted column as a stair pillar.
