The ridge and hips are in red tile. Original nine-pane sash windows to the upper storey at front. The lower windows to front are enlarged late C19 canted bay windows, with small-paned sashes, replacing earlier smaller bays. Small external porch at front. The house stands on a terrace five steps above the front lawn.

At rear the windows are altered to casement type in original openings except the lower left window which is in an altered opening. One rooflight window at rear.

A high limestone wall screens the house from the adjacent road, with a coping of large water-eroded blocks.


Contemporary staircase with scrolled end to handrail over curtail step; balustrade with iron balusters at intervals.
