Yellow brick (Beaulieu buff) with a Welsh slate roof. T-shaped plan with a 3x5 block on the north side and a 6x4 block on the south with projecting porches on the north- west, south-west and south-east elevations, all three of which show evidence (straight joints) of being later additions, but closely contemporary with the original build.
