Painted brick facaae with a moulded band at 1st floor and a slight set-back at the entrance bay and at the corners. Hipped slated roof with modillioned eaves soffit (the rear and internal slopes are plaintiled). External chimneys of gault brick and a large rear stack of red brick. Sash windows; those at ground floor have elliptical heads of gauged brick, and those at upper floor have cambered heads. Small-pane sashes, at ground floor having sidelights. A pair of panelled entrance doors; circular panels below, and glazed with small panes above. Greek Doric portico with columns and flat entablature. At the sides are areas of plastered timber-framed walling and painted C16 brickwork. A little heavy close-studding and other C16 timber-framing survives, and there is believed to be a large open fireplace and moulded plaster ceilings in two rooms, all now concealed. Until C20, a chamber had full C16 panelling, incorporating the Arms of Wentworth. Some interesting early C19 joinery including panelled architraves.
