Ashlar sandstone lower storey, timber framed upper portions, brick repairs to sides and rear. Kerridge stone-slate roof and some concrete tiling. 2 stone and 1 brick chimneys. Square portion to left, has parts of original semi-fortified house. Expanded in early C17 to E-plan but now reduced to 3 sides of a small courtyard, 3- storey north front. Left 2 bays are of original portion. Tall stone plinth has 2 2-light chamfered stone mullions. Heavy major timbering above with tension bracing and weak studding. 1st storey has 2 inserted C17 5-light .ovolo-moulded wooden windows. Above these are a now painted coving, a moulded tie-beam and a blocked 4-light mullioned and transomed window in a gable. Added to right is an L-shaped portion. The plinth has lesser stonework and remainder more irregular timber framing with weak tension bracing. 1st storey has ovolo-moulded mullioned and transomed windows and top storey similar mullioned windows and in the corner a quadrant oriel. Chamfered stone doorcase to west range. At junction of 2 portions is a tall stone chimney with a chamfered coping, part of an embrasure and at the rear a round headed light. Behind the chimney is an open passage with an early C17 door to right with ovolo-moulded panels and studding. To rear stone plinth has mullioned windows, one of 10 lights and Flemish bond brickwork with cambered brick heads to C20 windows with glazing bars.

Interior: Eastern portion has a stone +-cellar or undercroft with large brick-arched ovens and a deeply rebated 4-centred arched doorcase. Tension braces visible in internal walls above. Much of upper work early C17, chamfered stone fireplaces, bead-moulding on staircase posts and cyma-moulded wooden doorcases. Also C18 plasterwork and ceiling covings.
