Plan: L plan. The main range faces south and is, presumably, 2 rooms on plan (interior not inspected); entrance on front to right of centre; rear right wing at right angles.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 4 window front with regular fenestration. C19 panelled front door to right of centre with a round-headed porch with trellis work in the head, the sides replaced with planks. The keyblock over the front door is inscribed "Ma foy a Dieu/Mon foyer a mes amis". 3 ground floor 2-light C20 timber casements with small panes. 4 first floor C20 3-light casements.
