House with attached iron railings. 'newly built 1813'. Cream Gault bricks with Welsh slate gambrel roof, the upper part hipped on the SE end. 3 storeys with attics and cellars and with complex extension to rear. EXTERIOR: symmetrical front with continuous parapet and 2 full-height brick bows, each with painted timber entablature at each storey height. The bows each have 3 grouped double-hung sash windows with small panes on each floor, framed by painted timber pilasters and with stone sills. In the centre, the upper 2 floors each have a double-hung sash window with small panes and red rubbed brick arches with stone imposts. The central entrance has a semicircular red brick arched head on stone imposts, enclosing an Adamesque fanlight. 6-panel door with reeded panel mouldings and reeded pilasters and frieze. Flight of stone steps with cast-iron handrails and bootscrapers. Cellars are lit by double-hung sash windows into an area enclosed by spear-headed cast-iron railings of segmental plan form echoing the bows. One stack at NW end of ridgeline. INTERIOR: substantially unchanged plan form with central hall leading through semicircular-arched opening to the staircase placed at right-angles. This is a cantilevered, open-well stair with stick balusters and wreathed hardwood handrail. Service stairs in rear. All major rooms have reeded architraves and skirtings and simple plaster cornices. 2 curved doors with curved reeded architraves survive, perhaps remnants of an earlier unrealised scheme. Some rooms have semicircular-headed recesses and cupboards with reeded surrounds. All first-floor rooms have reeded door architraves with lions' heads at the intersections.
