Garden front to W has 3-light windows under hood moulds. Gable to right has bay window of drawing room under a parapet with moulded cornice and coping.

Door is reached by 4 stone steps. E side of house has double-gable. Gable to right has window in lower storey under a hood mould, and doorway to left under a pointed arch, with fixed light above. Gable to left in a walled yard with the service wing. Service wing with lean-to on E side and gabled projection at SE angle. Centrally placed, square stack in brick with panelling and corbelled cap. On W side a single raking half dormer; the lower storey has no fenestration, thus screening off the service wing from the garden. On S side a 3-light window in upper storey and in lower storey a doorway with flanking fixed lights under a common lintel. On E side a raking half dormer, and in lower storey a doorway with overlight and casement to right under a common lintel. Gabled projection with C20 brick stack.
