Walls are rendered in black-and-white style, the roof is slate. The front has 3 2-light bay windows, of which the outer are under outshut roofs, the inner with a hipped roof below a central gable. The windows have coloured glass above transoms. Between the windows are 2 boarded doors with strap hinges. The outer turrets have 4-light small-pane windows in the upper storey, below pyramidal roofs with iron finials. The L-hand turret has a foundation stone at plinth level. On the L side, the lean-to behind the turret has a central boarded door flanked by 3-light small-pane windows. The rear has bay windows and central gable similar to the front.
