Wings with bowed windows to ground floor only. Asymmetrically disposed ancillary ranges to right and left; large tower to rear, its upper stage and ogee-shaped dome visible from the front. Rear elevation treated monumentally but with simpler detail. South elevation has single-storeyed projection with open central colonnade giving in to day rooms. INTERIOR: plan centred on an axial corridor with central staircase to rear of entrance hall. Principal rooms to ground floor; parquet floor to all rooms at front, oak panelling and doors in formal rooms (eg Board room), brass door furniture, and generously proportions 'd fireplaces with oak surrounds, all in an early 18th century style.
