Principal front is 5 bays with the central bay advanced and pedimented, and surmounted by a weather vane. Full-height blind segmental archway with rubbed brickwork, containing cambered archway to recessed entrance to stables either side, and 16-pane sash window above. Oculus in apex of pediment. Flanking bays have 12-pane sash windows with flat arched brick heads on each floor (one to lower left renewed in original opening). Lower storey arcaded by rubbed brick round-arched blind panels linked by stone impost bands. Continuous sill band to first floor. Right hand return elevation is symmetrically planned with advanced gables at either end, each with full-height blind segmental archway (that to left containing doorway). 4-window range between the gables, with single wide cambered headed carriage entry to centre, leading to central courtyard. Inner side of this range has 3 wide cambered arched entrances (of coach house) to ground floor, and 3 sash windows above. Opposite range has open-boarded upper storey, and wide archways with cambered heads to either side below (the left hand archway blocked).
