The southern half has a wide verandah on ground floor and similar balcony above, each supported on Doric columns with an iron balustrade to the balcony. French windows with modern glazing. Centre chimmeys. Wide Doric porch, with columns and pediment, on the north side of this round section. A long west wing added circa 1830, 7 windows including a curved bay at west end. To north of this later C19 wing of 6 windows including 2 storey bay. The Victoria County history says that this house belonged to William Stewart Rose the friend of William Pitt who was called "Pitt's Rose" on that account, and that Scott stayed with him here in 1807 and wrote part of Marmion in the house, also that Coleridge stayed here in 1816. However, the same has also been said of Gundimore nearby (qv) and the latter is more likely.

Lawn Cottage, Nelson's Cottage,Sandhills, its lodge and the street boundary wall and gate piers form a group. The lodge at Sandhills is of local interest.
