Red tile roof with brick stacks. Rectangular plan with later extension to the left gable end and rear left. Projecting earth closet at the right gable end, not of special interest. Two storeys and attic. Twin-gabled entrance front facing the main road with later extension to the left. Two 3-light C19 casements and a canted 4- light C19 casement to the ground floor; two 3-light canted oriel windows on projecting moulded brackets with simple chip-carved decoration to the first floor; 2 small 3-light windows with some diamond-leaded panes to the attic. Two 3-light casements one with leaded panes to the extension. Projecting open-sided 2-storey porch at the centre of the early range. Wooden bench seats with tall straight plank backs inserted on the ground floor; early studded plank door with decorative hinges within porch; canted 3- light window supported on a moulded bracket with a small carved boss towards the bottom. Right gable end: 3-light ovolo-moulded stone-mullioned casement to the ground floor; continuous dripmould above; 2-light window with stopped hood above; square slab sundial with moulded hood and inscription 'L.A.= GWINNETH 1661' at the top below the window; single-light window with ovolo-moulded surround and hood to the attic. Two large chimney gables and two 2-light ovolo-moulded stone-mullioned casements at the rear where a gabled 2-storey brick porch-like projection conceals an early plank door with fleur-de-lys ended hinges each bearing the date '1661' within a round-headed surround with keystone and imposts. Segmental-headed 2-light casements to the brick extension to the right. Ceramic finials to the forward-facing gables of the early range.
