The C19 parts are of gault brick. Tiled, hipped roof with fine scroll modillion eaves cornice of wood. Two symmetrical internal stacks originally with entablature, and a similar larger stack at junction of front and rear ranges. Plan of main range to road with rear service wing (mostly rebuilt), forming an L-plan. Two storeys and attics. Symmetrical elevation of seven window bays, including three slightly projecting centre bays. Rusticated quoins and band of chequerboard pattern brickwork. Similar finely gauged red brickwork to original flat arches and window surrounds. At first floor one C18 hung sash remains, the rest are C20 hung sashes of twelve panes each.

They were inserted when the windows were unblocked. Central doorway with C20 doorcase. Rear range, C18 in origin, but rebuilt in C19 and roof raised C20. Interior: Plan of hall with original hearth and staircase turret with original open-well closed-string five flight staircase. Balusters of slender twisted barley sugar type and moulded rail. A little early C18 raised and fielded panelling remains about here.

Abutting inglenook hearths between the kitchen wing and right hand front room. The one in the kitchen has been rebuilt. The ground floor, right hand room had stencilled floral pattern decoration of early C19, a fragment of which has been preserved in the attic. Roof of tenoned purlins in line, but staggered to hips.
