Gable projects slightly and has 5-light lower window, 3-light above, wing has two 3-light windows below and two 2-light windows above. Stepped dripmould over lower windows and upper right window, separate hoodmoulds to other two upper windows. E gable end has dripcourse carried round over ground floor 4-light. 3-light without hoodmould above. In angle behind, lean-to stuccoed Tudor-arched and buttressed porch with two windows to left, three above, with hoodmoulds. Large projecting SE wing with big 5-light N window.
Long plain W front of seven windows, the left two bays with larger windows and big flat-roofed projecting porch, probably altered in C20.

Garden is surrounded by stone retaining walls: Close Wall to S and SW; a stretch of high wall (previously listed separately) along lane to W; lower walls elsewhere and small C19 pedestrian gate (previously listed separately) with wrought iron gate at N end. Northern part of Deanery garden is site of house of Prebendary of Llanddewi, ruinous by 1720.


Not inspected but said to have vaulted cellars. T Roberts 1851 report does not refer to complete demolition but refers to adding library and drawing room and rebuilding rear with new upper floors.
