Mansion. c1820-30 in Tudor Style. L-shaped block, with 2 main facades having
symmetrical treatment, with a single-storeyed rear domestic wing (continued
northwards as a screen wall, linking together a series of service buildings),
and a C20 block partly-filling the internal angle. Plain slate roof; cemented walls.
The front (east), of 2 storeys and attic, 3 windows, has 3 gables (the middle
smaller), with weathered coping continued as a parapet between gables, with
octagonal turrets on ogee bases at the top of the 2 large gables, and at the
corners and centres of the short lengths of parapet. The upper windows have
hoodmoulds, the central lower one opening onto the roof of the bay; the other
windows are formed as 2-storeyed splayed bays, with crenellated tops and
painted window heads. The ground-floor is a 7-bay verandah, with thin buttresses
between 4-centred arches, crenellated parapet, and cusped spandrels. The south
elevation has a similar 3-gabled farm, with 6 windows arranged regularly at 1st
and ground floors, with hoodmoulds, Tudor arches, and sashes in reveals;
projecting at each side is an open porch, the one at the east side being the south
end of the front verandah. The north end is gabled, and has a tall porte-
cochere, with Perpendicular details to the 3 arches and the entrance doorway.
