Timber-framed and plastered with extensive restored C18 cable-pattern pargetting. Plaintiled roofs with axial and external chimneys of red brick. Small-pane casements and sashes mainly of C20. Boarded C20 entrance door. The C17 range has complete unmoulded timber-framing fully exposed. Some diamond-mullioned windows, now internal. A stairwing has a newel staircase rising through 3 storeys.
Clasped-purlin roof. The earlier single-storey range has unchamfered flat joists and a large open lintelled fireplace. A chimney is scratch-dated 1791, the probable approximate date of 2 corner cupboards and other alterations.
The house stands adjacent to a complete mediaeval moat, no doubt that surrounding the earlier house of the manor of Tarston.
