South elevation: 2 storeys and attic with moulded eaves cornice; 2:2:2 bays. central range flanked by boldly projecting wings with hipped roofs and storey bands, late C19 four-pane sashes within C18 surrounds; central 6-panelled door flanked by large C20 windows with semi-circular heads; the wings are linked at the front by a 3-bay arcade of semi-circular arches with raised keys and cornice capped by bases of former finials, stone sundial to centre of main range at first floor level inscribed "TEMPUS FUGIT". Attached single-storey, 3-bay wing with glazing bar sashes and a parapet with fleur-de-lys, links the house with a small 2-storey, 3-bay house, a wall links this house with the 2-storey stable block. North elevation: Provincial Baroque. 3 storeys with storey bands and partly balustraded parapet turned down at each end in convex quadrants; 2:3:2 bays with applied late C19 concrete quoins to each corner including those of the central break. Late C19 four-pane sashes within early C18 surrounds with segmental heads and raised keys, the second floor lights to each side of the central break are blind. The parapet balustrades follow the same rythm as the windows.
