at the front. E-plan: 3-bay hall range with central porch, projecting
wings. Two and 2½ storeys; symmetrical 3-gable facade; chamfered plinth,
continuous drip-course carried round the whole facade; 2-storey gabled
porch has outer doorway with large lintel undercut to make a simplified
Tudor arch, a rectangular panel in the face (now blank), a
similarly-shaped inner doorway, a small peep-window in the left side wall,
a 4-light double-chamfered stone mullion window at 1st floor and similar
3-light windows in each side, both blocked, a drip-band carried round over
all these. Left and right of the porch, and in the gable of the right
wing, are similar mullioned windows: 3 lights on each floor to the left
(the lower lengthened and with altered mullions), 5 lights at ground floor
to the right and 6 above, 5 lights on each floor of the wing with a
blocked 3-light attic window above: the upper windows have hoodmoulds.
Right return wall of right wing has a large external chimney stack,

Venetian window on each floor, with glazing bars, and a blocked
round-headed attic window (these 3 with keystones); left return wall has a
small 2-light window on each floor. Modern additions cover the whole of
the rear. In the angles of the wings are rainwater heads lettered
H . Interior: much altered, but pitch-pine chamfered beams with run-
