Four bays; chamfered mullioned windows with leaded casements and hoodmoulds to window of two main storeys. There are three 4-light windows on the ground floor, two of which have central king mullions, and four 3-light windows on the first floor. Above are four gabled-dormers with parapets, gabled finials and 2-light windows with dripstones. Main entrance to right of the northern bay has a C20 gabled rubble porch with a square-headed archway and 4-light windows in the side elevations. The doorway has a 4-centred arched head, a hoodmould, and a C17 studded door with strap hinges. There is a c1930 addition to the rear of the north end elevation and a large two-storey seven- bay wing to the rear of the southern two bays of C19 date with later additions.
