The house is in 2 parallel ranges. 4 flat pilasters are spaced across the centre front and a brick band runs between each storey and below the eaves soffit. 3 windows to the centre front, all 12-pane sashes in plain reveals. A central 6-panel door has a plain rectangular fanlight and an Ionic porch with fluted columns. The slightly lower extension on the left has a blank wall; the extension on the right (formerly No.17A) has 2 large-paned sash windows to the upper storey and one to the ground storey. A 4-panel door with the top panels glazed has a fanlight with radiating glazing bars in a semicircular brick arch with plain reveals. The back wall is faced in mid-C19 red brick, probably over an earlier core, with a good canted bay on the south side. 12-pane segmental-headed sash windows in plain reveals. INTERIOR: cellar below part of rear range has walling including kidney flint and stone blocks. A small extension contains C19 wine bins. The principal ground storey room in the rear has a good plaster cornice with egg-and-dart and bead-and-reel ornament. The south side of the front was extended c1900 in a style matching the earlier interior with ornate plaster cornices; this doubled the size of the ground storey room to the left of the entry. The extension to the right of the entry was in a plainer style. Stair in entrance hall with stick balusters, bracketed strings and wreathed handrail.
