Red brick (earlier portion recently cleaned of paint), with sandstone dressings and slate roofs.

The villa, in Regency Gothick style, a symmetrical 2-storey 3-window range, has a moulded 4-centred arched doorway in the centre, with a recessed studded plank door and flanking arched niches, a tall 2-light window above, and two 3-light windows on each floor, all these windows with arched lights and those at ground floor with hoodmoulds; and a shallow hipped and slightly swept roof with oversailing boarded eaves, and side-wall chimneys. Right-hand return wall has 3 similar windows at ground floor and 2 above, all of 2 lights; rear has (inter alia) a pointed arched doorway and a tall stair-window. The added wing, which is larger and in neo-Tudor style, has a gabled facade with kneelers and finials (etc), a large canted mullion-and-transom bay window at ground floor with a pierced traceried parapet, 2 cross-windows at 1st floor and a 3-light mullioned window to the attic, with hoodmoulds; and a steeply-pitched roof with clustered and corniced stone chimneys on a square stack. The long left return wall, in similar style, has (inter alia) a shallow gabled wing. History: built for William Taylor, then manager of Horrocks's Moss Mill (q.v.) and subsequently owner of the former Tulketh Mill, a leading figure in the town until his death in 1852.
