Dating from 1737 this small country house is built in red brick with painted ashlar dressings. It has hipped slate roofs with dogtooth eaves and 3 lateral stacks.

The central doorway on the south elevation has a columnar porch with entablature.

The single hipped dormers have plain sashes which flank a central open pediment supported on a pair of consoles and containing a keyed oculus.
