Red brick (narrow bricks to C17 part); slate and machine tile roofs. Original house probably a T-plan with gable- ed staircase projection to rear lengthened and widened to left in mid-C18.
Front wall largely rebuilt in late C18 and extended to left in late C19 or early C20. 2 storeys and attic. 3-window front, slightly unevenly spaced and stepped horned 6-paned sashes with segmental heads. Central entrance; segmental-headed 6-panel door (middle panels now glazed) under C20 gabled timber porch. Integral end stack to right and another to left at junction between late C18 part and C20 addition. Leaded latticed fixed-light window in infilled pointed doorway to back wall and similar window to left side of rear range lighting staircase. Interior. Main feature of interest is dog-leg staircase- rising from ground floor to attic: carved panel on first half-landing has superscription E 16 . Twisted balusters to open string, moulded handrail and newels KM 82 with carved finials and pendants. Turns in 2 directions to second half- landing. Chamfered ceiling beams to both ranges on ground floor and to main range on first floor. Door on first floor has reused C17 rectangular oak panelling.

Late C19 brick lean-to attached to rear of rear range is not of special architectural interest.
