4-pane sash windows above; antefixae on blocking course. Flanking bays have
early C20 6-pane casementswith 4-pane sashes above. All windows in architraves,

Interior: not fully seen. 2-bay screen with tall fluted columns at foot of
geometrical stair. Drawing room fireplace and some other features said to

Another north-west corner quoin dated 1745 probably relates to the previous
house on the site, replacing a tower thought to have stood on what is now the
front lawn, where parch marks sometimes show a rectangular structure.
