Asymmetrical, tall gabled main range orientated E-W, with main gabled W front, tower at N (left) fronting lower square-plan range with L-plan pitched roof. Slated roofs with decorative axial ventilators, single tall prominent stack rises from between roof pitches.

Modern iron railings on low boundary walls, corniced gatepiers, some with pyramidal caps.
