House. Mid C18, with mid C19 additions to form a lower service wing. Walls of
brickwork in Flemish bond, plinth, lst floor band, rubbed flat arches, parapet
with stone coping and stucco modillion cornice: plain service wing. Hipped tile
roof, flat-roofed dormers. Symmetrical west front elevation with full-height

wing of two storeys, 2.1 windows. Victorian sashes in reveals. Stucco doorcase
of Tuscan or plain Doric Order, with pediment, pilasters, architrave, and 6-

has a ground-floor Venetian window. The rear (east) elevation of the main block
is symmetrical, of two storeys attic and basement, 5 windows, with similar
details and a plainer doorway, having a pediment on brackets and half-glazed
door. The drop in ground is marked by a flight of steps (from the doorway),
which turns in each direction at half level: this is a stone structure of the mid
C19, of classical and rich ornament, including bulbous piers and pierced parapet.
The service wing is less regular, with the ground-floor part of the earlier date.
There are minor extensions at the north and south ends. A brick in the north
chimney is incised I.M.1767.
