Exterior

Roughly square, one-and-a-half storey building of rubble, roughcast from dado level upwards, with long sweeping slate roofs; decorative chevron patterning in lighter slates. The building is essentially of double-pile design with central unifying pyramidal roof and surmounting gabled and slatted louvre. Single-storey gabled porch to E (road-facing) side with octagonal recessed window to its gable; diagonal glazing bars. Pointed-arched, chamfered entrance to N side, with small gable over; boarded double doors. The E and W sides of the main block are M-shaped, the gables of the 2 piles meeting to form a valley in the centre; the outer roof pitches are longer. Each of the gables has a tall central recess with canted head, those to the N containing 9-pane fixed windows above later ground-floor windows; vertically-boarded divisions to centre. Those to the S (garden-facing) side have modern upper sections and, to the ground floor, a 9-pane full-length window to the L, with a glazed door to the R; octagonal window as before to far R, with plain chimney at corner beyond; 2-part construction with brick upper section. Further, projecting stack to centre, between the paired gables. A further octagonal window appears to the R of the northern twin-gabled side, consciously interrupting its symmetry. Narrower advanced bay to the W side with long, shallow catslide roof; part-glazed central door with plain, narrow flanking lights.

To the W of the building, a triangular rubble-walled yard/garden with, in the W corner, and bordering the lane to the N, a triangular pavilion or store. Of rubble with pyramidal slate roof with chevron decoration as before and lead ball finial. Boarded door to E side and boarded window to N (lane-facing) side.
