Entrance front: five bays symmetrically disposed. Central doorway with C19 6-panelled door and C19 gabled timber porch. To either side at ground floor level are C19 3-light casement windows with tile sills and flat-arched heads each of which would appear from variations in the surrounding brickwork to replace two 2-light casement windows. Between the ground and first floors is a band of 3 bricks depth, the two outer rows projecting and the central row recessed. The five first floor windows are all of two casement lights with C20 tile sills and flat-arched heads of gauged brick. The roof is hipped and has a chimney stack at right. The right hand side has a band of 2 bricks depth between the ground and first floors. Two C20 2-light casement windows at right of centre to ground floor and first floor and two blocked cambered headed windows at far right.

The right hand gable has a C20 outshut at ground floor level with a 2-light cambered headed casement window at left now expanded at the side to accommodate a wider C20 metal framed window. Band of 2 bricks depth between the floors and a cross window to the first floor at left. The left hand gable end has a band between the floors and a 2-light casement window. Between the two wings there originally ran a passage or light well which was filled in in the C19 to provide an extra room to the ground and first floors each with a single-light window. Interior: The ground floor front rooms have panelled window seats and shutters and 8 doors, each of 6 panels to the ground and first floors. The staircase has cut string, turned balusters and column newel posts with a swept and ramped moulded handrail. The first floor rooms and landing also have panelled window seats although those in the room at left of the entrance front are C19 or C20 replacements. The room at right of the entrance front has two fitted cupboards to either side of the chimney with panelled doors with arched tops. The back staircase has a moulded handrail and square newel posts but stick balusters of C19 date. Five plank doors to the attic.
