House. Front range c.1760-70; earlier work to rear, with probably C17 core. Red brick.

Inset sash windows with glazing bars under flat brick arches; tripartite centre window with cornice. Half-glazed entrance door with lower raised and fielded panels, rectangular fanlight with glazing bars, panelled reveals; Roman Doric porch on square columns. 2 pedimented dormers to front, one segmental-headed dormer to each return front. There are later single-storey wings each with one sash window and flanking triple-arcaded screen walls surmounted by stone vases at each end. Good main staircase in oak with one fluted and one twisted baluster to each tread, carved tread-ends and a ramped and wreathed handrail. The right hand bedroom has a fine Rococo plaster ceiling with rich modillion cornice and a white marble fireplace with veined brown marble inlay. The stairwell ceiling has an enriched cornice and central rosette. The left hand bedroom is plainer, with a dentil cornice and Adam-style fireplace.
