Right-hand return front of left-hand wing with 6-pane sash on each floor. Late C19 addition set back to left with dentil brick eaves cornice, parapeted gable end, brick ridge stack off-centre to right, first-floor segmental-headed glazing bar sash, and ground-floor parapeted addition with 16-pane glazing bar sash to left and small sash to right. South-east front: 2 probably late C18 full-height canted bays to left ; central 3-bay late C18 addition with cornice and blocking course, hipped roof, integral brick end stack to left and brick stack behind ridge; 3-bay c.1840 block projecting at right with horned segmental-headed sashes, plat band,hipped slate roof and 2 brick stacks.

Pevsner refers to a datestone (1734) which was not noted at the time of survey (March 1983). The earliest part of the house appears to be the C17 south- east wing which was later used as part of the symmetrical early C18 south-west front. V.C.H. Vol. VIII, p.p. 13-27; B.0.E, p. 124. H.E.
