Two storeys, west wing with attic. Rubble, partly brick - C19 replica of half

modern chimneys. South front, gable of west wing projects to left, a 2-light
window over door and three 3 light windows, modern leaded casements with modern
wooden lintels. West wing gable has 2 and 3 light oak mullion windows, some
original. Rear of west wing retains close studded timber framing with herring
bone brick infill, apparently late C16; ogee bracing; ground floor rubble.
