Orangery/planthouse, converted into cottage. Circa mid to late C18; converted circa mid C19. Red brick with stone dressings. Slate roof behind parapet, originally hipped at rear and with central valley. Brick axial stack.

Three full-height windows with gauged brick flat arches, now interrupted by inserted floor and with 2-light sashes with glazing bars inserted, the centre ground floor now a doorway with side- lights. Across the front of the ground floor is a 5-bay wooden trellis verandah. At rear a C19 gable-ended wing with a 16-pane sash in the end wall, and flanking outshuts.
