The house, in 2 parts, is embraced by a tall boundary wall with quadrant corner, possibly from an earlier building, or added in the nature of a folly (see also Wyke Castle, qv, in the same road). The house front, which is rendered, is in 2 sections, each of 2 storeys, with 4-pane sashes. To the left is a low 1-window section with mansard front slope containing a half-dormer to an arched top, above a sah flanked by a door each side. To the right, with a higher eaves and hipped roof, a 2-window range, the upper sashes to arched heads; the return gable end has one arched sash, a door, and a narrow gabled garage range. A small brick stack to the left gable of the main range, and a further stack to the lower range at the outer wall. INTERIOR not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: the boundary wall has a series of small square openings to flush stone lintels over deep-set wood casements; facing N is one such, to the right of a stone-cheeked porch with stone umbrella-hood with finial, over a plank door, with a later casement to its left. At the corner the wall sweeps up to a full 2-storey height, with a stone coping and 5 scattered small openings, plus a 2-light casement and a blocked door. At the right-hand end the wall is stopped to dressed quoins, then drops to a lower boundary wall. (RCHME: Dorset, South-East: London: 1970-: 373).
