House. Late C18 with large early C19 additions; restored 1984-5. The earlier work is in flint with brick dressings under slate roofs. Gothick style. 2 storeys. The original work consists of a central canted block with side wings right and left. The central element has 2 window bays to the face and one each to the return facets. Square porch off-set to the right of the face with an arched opening under a crenellated parapet. The crenellations had rebated merlons. One horned 6/6 sash left and two, unhorned, to the first floor. The canted bays have one Gothick sash to each floor: pointed arches with Y-tracery. The parapet is crenellated like that to the porch. The side wings have both been truncated to one storey and have had brick second storeys added. The right-hand wing has a late C20 upper storey, the left-hand wing an early C20 addition elaborated and extended into a substantial square 2-storey block dated 1902. The ground floor remains C18: gabled central porch on kneelers. One Y-tracery sash left. Two 6/6 early C20 sashes to the first floor under gauged skewback arches. This block has a tall hipped roof clad in machine tiles. The rear of it has five 6/6 sashes arranged like the dots on the face of a gaming dice. One wall stack to the east and west sides. In the centre of the rear aspect is a tall 2-storey C19 block with a canted end. 6/6 sashes. This block runs into the rear of the Gothick front element where it appears as a hipped roof over it with a Y-tracery sash under the eaves to the right and left. A further C19 brick 2-storey wing diverts to the north-east in 3 bays: sashes and 2 stacks on the hipped roof.
