1888 dated on rainwater heads. Irregular house in freely-treated Tudor style
with naive classical details, perhaps suggesting Elizabethan features. Two
storeys and attic. Red brick ground floor with irregular darker diaper. Upper
parts hung with fishscale tiles. High pitched tiled roofs with fishscale bands,
fancy ridge tiles and elaborate terra-cotta finials. Two bays on main front,
the left one gabled and with a 2-storey projecting square bay. Pedimented entrance,
then octagonal tower at right with spire-like roof. Right return has 3 closely-set
gables in centre and varying roof heights from left to right; also roll-moulded
Tudor-arched entrance with label over. Eaves and door decorations of moulded
brick. Good wrought iron screens to door and ground floor windows.
