Three tall pilastered red brick stacks. Two storeys and attics. Three-gabled asymmetric facade with boarded and coved eaves and barge boards. Ionic fluted pilasters to recessed main entrance with eliptical arch and key block approached by steps. Half glazed double doors and side lights. Five mullioned and transomed casement windows at each floor level including large two storey staircase window. Two hipped dormer windows. Moulded band between floors and plinth. INTERIOR. Staircase hall with fine original dog leg staircase with balustrade with turned pine balusters. Here and elsewhere fine stone and marble French style fireplaces probably brought in later. In the north east Billiard Room is a fine late C19 coloured marble fireplace and elaborate late C20 trompe l'oeil mural decoration with architectural framework, equestrian paintings and bookcases. Attached to the north and east of the house are high brick garden walls which form an enclosed walled garden to the north and also link to the house's own coach house and stabling block to the north west and another brick walled garden to north. This stable block is U-plan, in similar style to the house, and is of red brick with timber-framed frieze and tops to gables. Plain tile roof with moulded stacks. To left garage accommodation with sliding doors, former stabling to centre under pentice roof and domestic accommodation to right with 3-light oriel window in the end gable and bays to ground floor on the outer wall facing the principal stable quadrangle (qv). Dormers over. The house was designed with the stables and stud farm as part of a planned racehorse training establishment and was leased in 1892 to Richard Marsh, trainer to the Prince of Wales from the beginning of 1893 and later to George V and George VI.
