The house is mostly of brick with some stonework to rear, stone dressings, and some terracotta detail in Nesfield's additions. Slate roofs throughout. It is 3 storeyed and comprises entrance wing facing west, with main hall range facing S. Single storeyed dining room wing added to the SE between 1784 and 1810, with service wing of 1872-5 to its rear.
Garden Front: Symmetrically planned and arranged 2-1-3-1-2, in which the 2 outer bays to each side are additions or refacing work by Nesfield. The central section is late C17 work, and comprises a 3-window central range with advanced outer wings to either side. These originally had differentiated bays in each re-entrant angle, and these remain, although the wings themselves were first obscured by additions of c1840, and then refaced ino Nesfield's remodelling work. In the earlier, central section, the windows throughout are 12-pane sashes with heavy glazing bars and gauged brick heads. Stone entablatures over brick arches of attic storey windows. The central ground floor window, of similar type, was inserted by Nesfield to replace the earlier doorway. Stone quoins and string courses, which are stepped as continuous hood-mould band to first floor. Parapet with central pedimented gable, probably the result of alterations carried out c1840. The outer bays added by Nesfield are in a Queen-Anne style which complements the late C17 work. They are symmetrically designed, and each has sash windows to ground and first floor of 12 and 18-panes in broad wood surrounds, and with finely gauged brick heads, steeply cambered to ground floor, flat arched above. Wood mullioned and transomed windows in attic storey. Brick aprons below first floor windows, and string courses between first and second storeys. Modillion eaves cornice. Steep roof with pedimented dormer windows. Brick panelled stacks on wings and also set to rear of main range.
Dining Room wing added between 1784 and 1810 continues the line of the S front to the E. Single storeyed, 3-window range with doorway to left in ornate case with crest between broken pediment. This is a facsimile of the late C17 main entrance door in the centre of the S elevation, and is one of Nesfield's alterations. 3 15-pane sash windows.
Entrance Front: Entirely the work of Nesfield, 1872-75. 3 storeys, 5 bays, with 4-storey central advanced porch. The detail of the outer bays follows the same scheme used in the S front, with cambered heads to 12-pane sash windows of ground floor, 18 panes to first floor, and mullioned and transomed windows above. The central porch has richly detailed doorcase with swags to frieze, and painted crest in the broken pediment. This design was based on the late C17 doorway which had previously been in the centre of the S elevation. 12-pane sash window in stone architrave above. Deep fluted brackets carry balcony with wrought iron rail to 2nd storey, with 24-pane sash window between coupled pilasters divided by terracotta sunflower panels. Paired casements in upper storey, and sundial in apex of shaped Dutch gable which is surmounted by semi-circular shell pediment and heraldic pelican. Pedimented dormer windows in the roof to either side. The entrance front is flanked to either side by single storeyed screen walls (with inserted casement windows) surmounted by balustrade, which concealed the top-lit billiards room to the left, and the conservatory (dem.) to the right.
Rear elevation and service wing: Rear elevation has similar configuration to S front, with advanced outer wings to either side. The W wing is entirely by Nesfield, but the E wing is late C17 and retains some of the original mullioned and transomed windows in its upper floors. Central section is built of stone, probably not as a single phase, and is partly roofed at right angles to the main range of the building. Left of the present porch, a re-sited pedimented doorcase (late C16-early C17) gives access to the basement. Service wing encloses courtyard to rear of house to E. Added by Nesfield; stone, with slate roofs. 2-storeys, with central advanced pavilion block facing yard.
