Central break rising above cornice with semi-circular parapeted gable and attic glazing bar sash with exposed box, and plat band above; pitched roof behind with moulded eaves cornice. Segmental-headed 2-light wooden-framed leaded metal casements to basement. Central door with 6 raised and fielded panels, radial fanlight and early C19 wooden doorcase consisting of fluted pilasters, entablature with lattic ornament, and triangular pediment. Flight of seven semicircular grey sandstone steps. Rear: three storeys. One hipped leaded dormer with moulded cornice. Late C18 rear wing (see straight joint) with two plat bands and integral lateral brick stack to south-west. Segmental-headed 16-pane glazing bar sash and leaded attic cross window to rear.

INTERIOR: c.1680-1700. Oak staircase: dog-leg with landings, closed string, turned balusters, moulded handrail, and moulded square newel posts. Continues with balustrade to attic. Left-hand ground-floor room: now part of entrance hall (dividing wall removed in late C20 and left-hand staircase balustrade added). Corner fireplace with bolection-moulded wooden surround. Right-hand ground-floor room: mainly c.1680-1700 fittings. Bolection-moulded oak panelling with dado rail and moulded cornice. Fireplace has C20 bolection- moulded wooden surround with panel over. Windows with bolection-moulded surrounds, panelled reveals and seats. 6-panelled doors with L-H hinges and bolection-moulded surrounds. First-floor landing with c.1680-1700 painted imitation bolection panelling (red/brown with shading). Right- hand first-floor bedroom: c.1680-70 bolection-moulded panelling with dado rail and deep moulded cornice. Plain moulded fireplace surround. Attic with c.1700 panelled doors. Basement: former kitchen to right has large open fireplace with wooden lintel. Former scullery to left with slop sink and sluice; present kitchen in rear wing has large open fireplace with large (probably reused) wooden lintel, a pair of C18 panelled doors with lugged architraves, and three C18 cupboards with shaped heads and drawers below. The sashes in the second bay from the left appear always to have been dummies because they are obstructed by internal walls.
