Built 1902-3 and designed by Douglas and Minshull, architects, of Chester.
Rendered with small polygonal pieces of stone to ground floor, roughcast above, with freestone dressings and plain tiled roof. 2 storeys, planned with entrance in advanced gable towards centre, with principal rooms to W and to rear, and service rooms to right. Entrance gable is stone in its lower storey, and has doorway offset to the right, in moulded architrave with shaped head, derived from a C16 pattern, with date and the words 'Nisi Domini' inscribed. 3-light window to left of doorway and above. To the left of this gable, a 3-light window to ground floor, 2-lights above. Service range to the right of the entrance has bands of windows of 1 and 2 lights on each floor. Canted bay window in W gable return, with timber balcony alongside. Rear elevation has central full-height canted bay window advanced from a gable: 2 and 3-light windows in the bay, and similar windows to its right. Mainly 2-light windows in the service range to the left of the bay. Windows throughout all have high-set transoms, with decorative leading in the upper lights. Single storeyed range of outbuildings adjoins the house to the E, forming a small enclosed yard.
The house is planned with a large entrance and stair hall, with an internal timber porch or lobby, with leaded glazing; turned baluster staircase. Original joinery throughout, with distinctive horizontal moulded panels to doors. Some original fireplaces, including hall fireplace with enamelled tiles.
A refined neo-vernacular building, expressive in its clear articulation of the different elements of the house, and in its simplified detail.
