Probably Walter Newall architect, circa 1850; additions to W
in sympathetic style circa 1900, reproducing details of
original house; subsequent lesser additions. Picturesque
2-storey villa with basement, barge-boarded gables and dormer
heads. Stugged red ashlar coursers with polished dressings,
windows with deep cavetto cornices.
ORIGINAL HOUSE: N, S and E elevations broadly similar, each 3
irregular bays with advanced wide gable right (4th bay on N
elevation recessed right); upper windows with bracketted
cills and shaped caps; otherwise windows in full-height
projecting shallow bays. S elevation: door in inner bay, with
steps and balustrade, shallow porch with cavetto cornice and
consoles with anthemion ornament; balustrade above and 1st
floor window deeply recessed in round-arched panel. N-facing
door in main gable; wide canted (? circa 1930) window
replaces ground floor windows alongside. Bracketted eaves
with decorative bargeboards and finials; low axial stacks
with tall flues; roofed with graded slates. Circa 1900
addition also with bargeboarded gables.
GATEPIERS: all chamfered and corniced square piers made of
red ashlar; 4 piers at N with short quadrants and cast-iron
gates; urns over inner piers perhaps added late 19th century.
2 piers at S with pyramidal caps raised on blocks.
