The main range, south elevation is of two storeys and three bays, with an advanced gabled bay to the centre forming the entrance porch to the doorway. The gable has coped gables and moulded kneelers, and is supported by fluted octagonal columns with an entablature and cornice, above which is a mullioned and transomed first floor window of three-lights. Above the window, there is a smaller opening to the gable apex, the lintel of which bears the date 1855. The central doorway has a shallow arched head, chamfered surround and six-panelled door, the upper four panels of which are glazed. Flanking the doorway at ground floor level are canted bays with shallow parapets and chamfered mullion and transom window apertures, all with glazing bar casement windows.
