Country house, now flats. Late C18. Render grooved as ashlar over brick, rusticated ground floor, bitumen covered hipped slate roof, pediaented central 3 bays breaking forward slightly, cut by cornice and string course, rendered brick stacks. L-plan: Main suite of rooms on South front behind colonnade, cross vaulted entrance hall and central stair behind, service wing North East corner. South front: 3 storeys, 1:3:1 bays; rosette in tympanum, attic storey 4 pane sash windows, outer central bays in raised surrounds, first floor 12-pane sash windows with moulded lintels to outer bays and pediment to centre, ground floor 15-pane sash windows in outer bays, two 16-pane sash windows centre and one in second bay left with inserted glazed door, fronted by Doric colonnade of 2:3:2 bays with paired columns in centre and in angles, pilaster responds, metope and triglyph frieze, boarded soffit, surmounted by low balustrade. Entrance on 3 bay left return, C20 half glazed double doors, flat roofed ashlar Doric porch with frieze of rosettes and tryglyphs, boarded soffit, low balustrade. Long right return of 4:3 bays, some leaded iron casements in service wing at rear. Interior: dog leg stair, thin turned balusters, Adam-style ceiling to oval stair-light lantern, Adam-style plasterwork cornice, otherwise no interior features of note. The columns of the colonnade are much eroded due to use of poor stone, this, the absence of interior decoration and the early use of brick, point to a country house builder with an eye to economy. The house was divided into flats circa 1965. (Photographs in NMR).
