Circa 1810-20 red brick 3 bay 2 storey detached villa, an early and delicately
detailed example of the type. Plinth, thin painted stone sill bands, eaves
band. Hipped old slate roof rising to narrow ridge. Tall red brick flawing
chimney stacks. Shallow reveals to later C19 each windows with thin painted
stucco frames, those on ground floor with shallow consoles to stucco heads
with incised oral rosette ornament and cambered shallow cornice mouldings
to tops. Central wooden doorcase with pairs of very slender fluted columns
(really shafts) supporting sections of Doric entablature and open segmental
pediment-hood. Reeded surround to round headed panelled reveal doorway proper
with double panelled doors and intersecting glazing to the fanlight. The villa
stands back, behind carriage sweep. Screen wall to passage with door on right,
gig house rebuilt as garage to left abutting swept ramp red brick garden wall
carried down and out to rendered corniced terminal piers. The window details
are similar to those of the 1813 Gun Barrel Proof House.
