Italianate details with alterations to the wing and rear elevation in 1902 (dated rainwater head) of an Arts and Crafts character. The main elevation, above the plinth, has channelled pier arcading containing the ground floor windows with archivolt arches; first floor windows with archivolt arches; first floor sill course, carried over wing; frieze decorated with festoons between superimposed console brackets supporting the flat eaves of the hipped slate roof. Tall flanking chimney stacks vertically incised to give grouped effect and cornice capped. Central dormer with round keystone arched window under open segmental pediment (1902). The first floor windows have eared architrave surrounds.

The wing has a 2 storey narrow, leaded light, canted bay window of 1902 and small square eared architrave windows no doubt inserted at the same date. The original porch replaced by a cornice hood suspended from an Arts and Crafts scrolled iron tie rod. The plinths flanking steps are surmounted by ornate scrolled iron lamp standards. The frieze is returned around main block to garden front pediment gable break - bay windows, altered 1902.
