Stone rubble with dressings of granite and buff and orange brick. Ornamental slate
roof gabled at ends with 3 gables to the front, elaborate brick shaft on ridge. High
Victorian, although less decorative than Hornapark (q.v.), the lodge to Lifton Park
in Lifton. 2 storeys. 3-bay symmetrical front with very deep eaves, plinth,
rusticated quoins, and a predominant central chimney stack. Central porch with
moulded cornice and embattled parapet. 2-leaf half-glazed front door with diagonal
leaded panes and 2-light windows to left and right returns. 3 first floor and 2
ground floor 2-light casements have diagonal leaded panes, chamfered buff and orange
brick architraves, keystone and projecting granite sills. Blocked keyed brick oculi

cornice and a lower tier of blank recesses, an upper tier of round-headed blind
arcading in polychromatic brick work. The lodge formerly had elaborate pierced
Gothick bargeboarding (NMR) of which the stumps remain on the facade.
Interior not inspected. The character of the house has been preserved despite the
loss of the bargeboarding and C20 reglazing.
