Detached house. C15 with C17, C18, C19 and C20 alterations and additions. Original range of irregularly bonded brickwork with chamfered plinth and ashlar quoins. Later work in Flemish-bond brickwork, partially rendered. Tiled roof, half-hipped to the rear; brick stacks. South front: 2 storeys, 3 window range. C20 2-light casements with glazing bars. Central C20 glazed door. Former cross-passage entered through C20 door in re-entrant angle between front and rear ranges.

Internal features: a number of early doorways with heavy timber frames; C18 or early C19 panelled doors with original hinges; deep stop-chamfered ceiling beams; C18 wing has a cast iron fireplace, probably early C19; the south room of the early range retains an original chamfered, arch braced collar beam truss roof with curved windbracing to the purlins and exhibiting traces of smoke-blackening; the roof to the north end of the original range has later collar trusses, reusing earlier timbers; the central section of the roof is not visible.

Recent C20 additions are in keeping with the rest of the house. (RCHM, Dorset, vol. V, p.14-15, no.30.)
