Lodge to now demolished house. Originally Tudor of C1840 but remodelled in a High Victorian Gothic C1870. Diapered red and blue brick; patterned tile roof. Of the earlier period the two 4 centred arches at the angle and the 2 mullioned windows with traceried iron glazing bars on the side to the drive (now represented by St George's Close). Towards the road, a square projection of the later date carrying an apsidal tourelle with 5 lancet windows of red and blue brick banded with stone and a steep spire with iron finial.
Towards the drive, the later period is represented by a steep gable attached to the tourelle and projecting on brackets over the earlier work. In it a hipped rectangular oriel window on brackets.
