Double-pile plan. 3-window front; 4-paned sashes, of reduced proportions to first floor, ground-floor windows replaced by late C20 top-hung casements. Central entrance through gabled porch, which has 4-paned sashes to side walls and inner C20 4-panel door.


Left ground-floor room has slate lintel to altered fireplace with the inscription "H.M. Williams/ AD1825" to incised keystone and incised medallion decoration. Central staircase with stick balusters and turned newel may be a later C19 alteration.
