dressed sandstone "brick" with left hand break to 3 bay front, raised on low terrace.
Hipped stone slate roof with flat eaves on elongated modillion brackets; corniced
chimneys. Plinth and first floor plat band. The recessed part has 2 broad first
floor windows, sashes with horizontal glazing bars in shallow reveals; tripartite
ground floor window with risers to sill. The break has 3 narrow first floor windows
and plain canted bay on ground floor. Recessed entrance next to break with panelled
door. Adjoining the break on the south side is a large single storey wing, probably
built as a ballroom. The front projects slightly from the house and its centre is
opened up with a large Venetian window, the arch breaking up into the deep
entablature running below the full width bracketed pediment. Behind this front
is a spacious lofty room with ribbed and compartmented barrel vaulted ceiling,
decorated with husk and rinceaux garlands. On the south side the vault is cut into
by 2 round headed windows with concentric glazing pattern. The ribs of the vault
spring from a deeply moulded cornice, supported at intervals by large consoles,
carried round all 4 walls. The west wall has additional feature of bold pilaster
swags and ribbons whilst on the north wall is a heavy carved wood chimney piece
with mirror over-mantel and scrolled open pediment. The low terrace around the
house and ballroom, has a cast iron interlinked circle railing articulated by cornice
capped stone dies.
