Irregular plan of later rear additions, main range of 3 storeys, 5 bays. Central part-glazed door in ashlar architrave set within surround with swept bases, and with consoles supporting dentilled pediment.

Stacks between second and third bays and at right end. To left, 2-storey lean-to elevation of added side range, with no openings to front. To right: single-storey curving screen wall. Rear elevation: obscured by later service additions. Right return: of same red sandstone as Croft Church (qv) and with blocked sash- window-shaped openings. Interior: windows have shutters; ground-floor doors of 6 fielded panels; early C18 pine open-well staircase with richly-turned balusters and swept handrail; first-floor doors of 6 vertical panels. There are cellars below the right-hand rooms, which may be part of an earlier building.
