Ornamental slate roof gabled at ends with 3 gables to the front, elaborate brick shaft on ridge. High Victorian, although less decorative than Hornapark (q.v.), the lodge to Lifton Park in Lifton. 2 storeys. 3-bay symmetrical front with very deep eaves, plinth, rusticated quoins, and a predominant central chimney stack. Central porch with moulded cornice and embattled parapet. 2-leaf half-glazed front door with diagonal leaded panes and 2-light windows to left and right returns. 3 first floor and 2 ground floor 2-light casements have diagonal leaded panes, chamfered buff and orange brick architraves, keystone and projecting granite sills. Blocked keyed brick oculi to the left and right front gables. The tall 2-stage brick shaft has a corbelled cornice and a lower tier of blank recesses, an upper tier of round-headed blind arcading in polychromatic brick work. The lodge formerly had elaborate pierced Gothick bargeboarding (NMR) of which the stumps remain on the facade. Interior not inspected. The character of the house has been preserved despite the loss of the bargeboarding and C20 reglazing.
