cornice, plaintiled roof with pantiles to rear of central range.
2 storeys. Symmetrical 5-bay centre range, cross windows with

through a panel in a window reveal. Interior with good early-mid
C18 staircase with 2 designs of twisted baluster per tread,
moulded handrail with scrolled ends, fluted newel posts; some
small remains of carved woodwork in right hand wing.
