Red brick and yellow brick with early C19 mansard roof, tiled, and ridge stacks. Main range, early C17 origin with facade to garden remodelled early C18. Patterned brickwork generally of pink brick stretchers and red brick headers. The door and window surrounds are of gauged red brick. Two storeys and attics. Three dormers with leaded roofs, the centre one is pedimented and has an oval window with glazing bars. One sash window and one dummy window. Moulded wood eaves, cornice and band of three courses of gauged brickwork between storeys. Centre Venetian window, early C18, with raised key block and hung sashes flanked by four flush frame hung sashes of twelve panes each in open boxing, painted white. Central doorway with early C19 reeded doorcase with boss enrichments at corners and possibly an early C18 flat hood reset. The two crosswings are of gault brick. Two storeys and attics. One dormer with leaded roof to each. One sash window and one dummy window. Two recessed hung sashes of sixteen panes each to each gable end. There is another early C19 reeded doorcase to a doorway in the right hand cross-wing and this also has a flat hood, possibly early C18 and reset. The same cross-wing has a two storey canted bay. At the rear are service wings mainly C19 and yellow brick, though there is some clunch. Interior: Evidence of the original C17 house can be seen in the main range where there are stop chamfered ceiling beams and a fine early C17 overmantel to an inglenook hearth. The overmantel is in two bays divided by a female herm figure and flanked by two male herm figures. Below is a frieze with vine leaves, a dog and a deer and other hunting motifs. The two rooms of the main range and one on the ground floor of the right hand cross-wing are lined with early C17 square, sunken panelling. That in the cross-wing is reset and incorporates a number of carved overmantels with arcading and some inlaid and painted panels, all early C17. The other cross-wing had raised and fielded panelling in three heights. R.C.H.M: Record card
