Tall central symmetrical block, of 2 storeys, with long side wings probably symmetrical originally but with many altered windows. The side wings effectively screened by shrubs and trees on the entrance front. North-west front - Ashlar stone, with chamfered quoins on wide projecting plinth with projecting slab coping. Moulded cornice with parapet and coping. Stone tile roof. The 3 centre bays have a slight projection and pediment over with a central carved stone cartouche of Arms. 7 windows with projecting sills and stone architrave surrounds on lst floor. 6 windows, without architraves on ground floor and projecting central porch, early C19 of stone with triple angle semi-engaged Doric columns to front and sides, and at angle of Junction with main wall a quadrant column, all supporting entablature with blocking course, and standing on projecting plinth. Double 6-panel doors, flush type. Wrot iron scroll pattern lamp bracket projecting over door. The side wings of 2 storeys with projecting string and parapet, the top of parapet level with sills of lst floor windows to main block. The original windows were probably all arched - 2-light casements on ground floor with oval cart wheel windows above. This now applies to left hand wing, and on ground floor only and partly to right hand wing. Many windows altered to 2-light square casements. The garden front is similar but plainer with central fall height canted bay. Modern school buildings added either side of house. The grounds retain fine trees particularly around house and are an important background feature to Devizes Green.
