Large house. Largely mid to late C19 but rear wing said to contain earlier fabric.
Unrendered stone rubble with ashlar dressings. Slate roofs with crested ridge
tiles. Richly carved large bargeboards with trailing foliage design to front gables
and plain bargeboards to rear gables. Asymmetrically disposed tall stacks,
unrendered brick to rear service wings and rendered to front range with moulded
ashlar caps and yellow clay pots.
Asymmetrical plan. 3 principal rooms to garden front which consists of 2 tall
gable-ended wings flanking recessed short connecting bay. Axial rear passage with
principal entrance to stairhall to left side. The adjoining rear right-hand service
block is set slightly to the right of the front wing; the rear left-hand service
wing with lower ridge level completes the rear courtyard plan and then returns to
the left to form an additional 2-storey 2-room plan range with a lofted integral
outbuilding at the left end. This range faces the farm courtyard at the rear of the
house; with its separate entrance it appears to have been originally intended for
independent farm occupation.

canted ashlar bay windows with 4-paned sashes reaching to ground level and zig-zag
decoration to the lintels. Left-hand wing has blank shield to gable. Recessed

entablature with paterae to the frieze and pilasters flanking segmental arched
doorway with 4-panelled door.
Rear range facing courtyard has slated gabled roof to C19 porch with 2-centred
arched doorway and plank door. 3-window range of C19 3-light casements. Circular
