House, now divided into two, c.1860 by Thomas Wilson for himself. Squared stone with ashlar dressings; slate roof. Free Gothic style. North front 2 storeys, with attic over central part, 3 sections. Centre section has gabled projecting porch at right. Panelled double doors under shouldered lintel and circular overlight, framed by pilasters and moulded arch; much carved ornament. Staircase to left gives varied floor levels. One- and two- light windows with varying Gothic treatment, the upper ones in half dormers hipped at left, elaborately-oranmented at right; string courses. Left section has projecting gabled right bay with diaper pattern in tympanum over first floor windows; at left remains of servants' wing. Projecting gabled right section has massive stack and a trefoil-headed window on each floor to right. Right return has trefoil-headed windows mostly in large single-storey bay at left and 2-storey canted right bay. Cast-iron balcony with spiral standards on rear elevation. Interior: Central hall has open well-stair with closed string, moulded balusters and handrail, and trefoil-pierced spandrel pieces. Intermediate iron standards have fleur-de-lys heads and plain tie rail. Doors with trefoil- headed panels and other contemporary fittings. Oaklands appears to be the prototype, both in style and plan, for Wilson's more grandiose Shotley Hall (1863).
