Brick axial chimney with 2 diagonally set shafts over main roof crossing, lateral brick chimney over rear wall of right hand room and brick chimney over left hand (rear) gable of C18 part. Plan: C19 4 room cruciform plan added to 3 room L-plan C18 house with its range of outbuildings. The C18 house adjoins the rear left hand corner of the rear wing of the C19 house. The C19 house has front and rear rooms sharing the central stack, pantry left and room on right with rear stack shared by lean-to in the angle behind. The central cross wing is taller with full height first floor and attic room at the front; the wings on either side have chambers partly in the roof spaces. Exterior : 2 storeys. 1:1:1 bay west entrance front with doorway into the right hand bay, left. Central bay has wide ground floor window, nearly as wide first floor window and square attic window to the gable. Wings left -and right have blind front windows. Over the central ground floor window the name Belvedere is inscribed in relief (similar plaque to Floyd in the rear gable). Except for the C20 window to the first floor of the front, all the windows are old 1, 2 or 3 light casements with glazing bars, and those to the principal rooms have transoms. The pantry window (gable end left) has louvres to the side lights. Interior not inspected. An interesting house resembling a C19 estate lodge but larger, and cunningly retaining the earlier house to create an harmonious group.
