Three storeys and three bays with central bay slightly advanced and pedimented. Main elevation has steps up to central ashlar Roman Doric pedimented doorcase, flanked by narrow sashes with tapering pilasters to outer edges and plain entablatures over, creating a Venetian style doorcase. Raised and fielded panelled door has semi-circular traceried fanlight above. To east side of the doorcase in the central bay is an early C20 war memorial with a brass plaque set in a pedimented stone aedicule. Side bays have glazing bar sashes under gauged brick flat arches. Two similar windows above and a central glazing bar set in raised, moulded, shouldered stone surround. Above again, there are three smaller glazing bar sashes, those to sides under gauged brick arches and that to centre in moulded stone surround. Similar windows to other elevations, except two late C19 canted bay windows to ground floor of west elevation. Interior has a fine oak staircase which has an open string with elaborate cheek-pieces and three different columnar balusters to each step, one tapering, one twisted, and one fluted, each on a square knop and a vase. It also has a wide moulded, ramped handrail. The staircase leads up to a large open first floor landing which has a balustrade of similar balusters. There is also a back staircase which goes up to the second floor, which has simple tapering, knopped balusters and ramped handrail. The ground floor east room has a fine contemporary coloured marble fireplace by George Moneypenny and one upper room has a plain shouldered C18 fireplace, the others are C19.
