Symmetrical facade, added in C18 to earlier building, has one-bay pedimented cross-wings on each side of recessed one-bay centre. Windows sashed with glazing bars. Wings have Venetian windows on ground floor and tripartite windows with sill band above. All have columns as mullions and pilaster reveals, with fluted necking. Within the pediments are Diocletian windows. The right-hand one is blind, as the pediment is carried up in front of the earlier roof line as a screen. In the centre on the first floor is a window with architrave and round head. On the ground floor the two wings are joined by a bowed porch supported on two columns, with engaged columns as responds. The door, of nine raised and fielded panels, has a pilaster doorcase with a fanlight above a fluted frieze. Chimneys at left, and behind ridge to left of right- hand wing.
