Order of Doric pilasters through 2 storeys above supporting pediment with coat of arms in tympanum. Dressings to 1st and 2nd storey windows. Railings and lamp standards to front area. Irregular rear elevation of 2 storeys. Yellow brick with slight stone dressings. INTERIOR: wrought-iron gates lead into a barrel-vaulted passage which originally gave access to a courtyard behind.

The right-hand doorway leads into a hall with an elegant cantilevered staircase, and the front room on this side has a marble fireplace with inset 'cameos'. The left- hand doorway leads into a self-contained unit comprising two ground floor and two basement rooms, the ground floor front room having a barrel vaulted-ceiling. Some delicate, plaster cornices and plain, early- C19 fireplaces survive in first and ground floor rooms.
