Ground floor is red and brown brick. Cement bands. Mosaic panels beneath the slightly jettied half- timbered upper floor. Machine tile roof. Front part (The Bricket Picture House) is one and a half storeys; rear part is 1 storey and attics. The front part has glazing bar casements, those of ground floor with small panes top and bottom. 2 window front, the left window a square bay carried through the eaves. S gable end has a central ground floor square window bay, upper floor with a trefoil-headed casement. Timbered gable projects slightly. The relief pictures are carried round three sides of this block. Set in the panels of the timber frame, the figures are in red plaster with brown and white plaster backgrounds. They show late C19 sporting activities, often crossing several panels. On the front elevations the scenes include a hunt, a 4- man scull and a wrestling match. The hunt continues on the N gable end. On the S gable end the panels are quite badly weathered and include a cricket and rugby match. Behind the front block the house is lower. The rear part (Little Bricket) has no reliefs. It has half-timbered gables and dormers, the N side with a C20 tile-hung attic. Projecting wing on S side is said to have been a chapel.
