South front: gable end of main block shows early Cl9 sashes in older openings.
South-east wing 2 storeys, 3 bays, band at lst floor level. Altered door with
tall 6-pane overlight in lst bay; 12-pane sash windows. Stepped and corniced
ashlar end stacks, that to right with circular stone pot. North front: various

Interior; main block, early C18 fireplace in moulded stone surround, panelled
shutters and 6-panel doors. North wing, west part ('the tower') has stone
barrel vault and old doorway with chamfered jambs, column-on-vase stairhead
The north wing is probably a C13 or C14 undefended hall house; the 2 opposed
doors indicate a passage through the solar undercroft, c.f. Burneside Hall and
Lammerside Castle (Westmorland). The thick (O.95m) walls and massive rubble
of the main block suggest a C16 date.
