The right hand bay has a higher canted bay window to ground floor, and a deeper sash window above. Each of these outer bays has full height pilasters on the angles. Two central bays have floor level 15 light sashes to ground floor, 9 lights above. All windows have moulded lugged architraves. Deep plain entablature or parapet. One lower and reputedly earlier bay to left. Right hand section is c1900. 2 storeys, 3 bays.

One round arched window to hall at each floor right of the porch in the earlier part of the house, then a hipped gabled projection and a later wing with 12 timbered gable and pent roofed extension to ground floor. Various casement and sash windows and decorative brick sill courses. Swithland slate roofs or pitch too low to be visible on garden front.
