Large enclosed porch with triglyph frieze and modillion cornice; arched entrance and side lights; panelled door under moulded cornice and lunette fanlight. Hipped slate roofs over extensions.
The bowed end wing is parapeted with first floor stringcourse, tripartite sash window to ground floor of bow. Two storey canted bay window to right hand of circa 1840 with windows, stringcourse and eaves cornice same as original house, but hipped roof higher. The long low wing to right is 3 windows wide.
A long service wing with dentil eaves and glazing bar casements extends to rear, screened by yard wall with gate piers.
