Earlier 18th century with near contemporary additions. Substantial baronial additions 1907. Originally 3 storey, 3 window wide by one window deep, droved ashlar rectangle with a Gibbsian doorpiece, raised angle, window and eaves margins and a piended roof with tall rectangular end-stacks on curvilinear gablets, extended W by one bay and returned North forming an L-plan house with symmetrical 5 window W front with closer spaced windows but otherwise identically detailed with the earlier work. 1907 work included the addition of crowstepped gablets at centres of East and West fronts and on the South front a crow-stepped porch with coat of arms, a turret at the SE angle and most importantly the left hand bay was pushed out as a lower advanced wing. Internally most of the plain 18th century work survives including a good scale-and- platt cantilever stair, the alterations of 1907 have no particular distinction.
