Graduated greenslate roofs with coped gables; left ashlar and brick end chimney stacks; right C18 gable brick chimney stacks. Rear extensions are of handmade bricks. 2 storeys, 5 bays of double span; central entry/stair plan. Central top-lit panelled double doors in quoined surround with key frieze and cornice hood. Sash windows with glazing bars in stone surrounds (originally C17 cross mullioned). Left C19 brick extension has 2-light windows with glazing bars in fluted stone surrounds. The rear stair projected from original single span and is of quoined sandstone with a large round-arched sash window in stone reveals under a hoodmould. The flanking extension to create the double span means that the stair no longer projects; these have irregular sash windows with glazing bars, some in C18 reveals but others are C19 insertions. INTERIOR has been extensively altered in late C18 or early C19. Panelled doors in panelled reveals and internal panelled shutters. Moulded plaster ceiling cornices.
