Red brick, with orange moulded terracotta dressings. Slate roof. One storey, with 2 storey centre piece. This fronts a pyramidally roofed foyer with an ornamental glazed tile interior, and a glazed clerestory roof: parapet, rising to central cartouche, and flanked by pilasters, outer ones with ball finials. Round-arched doorway, with segment-shaped transom, flanked by pilasters, then round-arched side-lights. Porte cochere with depressed arches between massive piers with diagonally-placed buttresses rising to complex finials. Mullion and transom windows either side, 4 bays to east, 3 to west, nearest bays with segmental pediments in parapet. Rainwater heads dated 1904, and case iron downpipes.

Exceptionally inventive moulded terracotta ornament covering the whole front, mainly Arts and Crafts in character, but in parts distinctly Art Nouveau.
