On the ground floor are 2 large canted bays with 2-6-2-pane sash windows with unusual ornamental frames with bead-moulding and upper corners chamfered. Dentilated cornices and flat roofs. In the right gable end is a small attic window, a large first floor and a flat-roofed porch with arched doorway facing forwards and reached by slate steps from road level.
