Description

The country house dates to circa 1700 and is flanked by mid 18th century wings. The south, or garden front, has a similar elevation to the main elevation. It has three storeys of seven bays to the main section, with single storey wings of three bays on either side. The central door is under a porch, and the middle three bays are capped with a tall parapet, with three relief garlands. The wings have Ionic pilasters dividing each bay and balustraded parapets.

The house is now used as a hotel.
