A large Elizabethan mansion on a S-facing sloping site, comprising the original main range set across the slope, a secondary dwelling originally detached and set down the slope at right angles to the main range, and an L-shaped linking wing between the 2 original houses.
The main house is 2-storey with attic and has a storeyed porch L of centre, a parlour cross wing at the R end, and a stair projection and added outshut behind. It is of rubble stone and has a graded slate roof behind crow-stepped gables on moulded kneelers, which have ball finials at the apex of each gable. Two stone lateral stacks are behind, with an end stack to the L. The front retains original cavetto-moulded mullioned and transomed windows incorporating C19 small-pane glazing. The porch has 2 Tuscan columns supporting a renewed wooden entablature, and a gabled upper storey with 3-light window and a diagonally-set apex pinnacle with ball finial. The doorway has a depressed arch with a shield engraved '1578 EMK', and a studded door with strap hinges. On the R side of the entrance is the hall, lit by a 2-light and two 3-light windows, with similar windows in the upper storey. Further R the cross wing has large 4-light windows in both storeys and smaller 2-light mullioned attic window. Its side wall facing the hall has a 4-light window in the lower storey and 3-light window above. On the L side of the entrance is a C19 5-light bay window and 2 original 3-light windows above, without transoms.
The L gable end is pebble-dashed. It has an inserted 2-light window lower R and an inserted casement upper L in the added outshut. The pebble-dashed rear outshut has 2-light casement lower R and a 3-light casement to the centre. To the lower L is a lunette (possibly a former doorway as it is in line with the screens passage) incorporating a casement. Another lunette is in a projection further L that abuts the stair turret. This has a stepped gable, a c1700 48-pane sash window with thick glazing bars lighting the stair, and a small-pane fixed light in its L side wall under a stone segmental head. To the L of the stair projection is the cross wing, which has a tall stone stack. In the lower storey are French doors inserted in place of a former gabled porch, and a 3-light window incorporating a casement upper R.
The wing linking the main house and secondary dwelling is 2-storey with attic and has a basement storey in the N-S arm necessitated by the fall of the ground. The wing is of rubble stone and has a replaced hipped slate roof and 2 rendered ridge stacks. Facing the front (S) it has 3-light mullioned and transomed windows in both storeys, but larger below. Its return, downhill, elevation has a segmental horned sash window in the basement and a 2-light mullioned window above. The lower house further down the slope is 2-storey, with crow-stepped gable to the downhill end, and a replaced slate roof, with a single lateral stack behind. Facing the front, the former doorway to the hall lower R is replaced by a window. A window is also inserted to its L replacing an earlier mullioned window. At the L end, lighting the room above the original parlour, is an ovolo-moulded 2-light mullioned and transomed window, the mullion missing above the transom where a sash window is inserted. A similar but larger cross window is to the R (partly obscured by vegetation). The lower gable end of the house has late C19 small-pane casements, 3-light below and 2-light above. To their R the rear wing has a boarded door with glazed panels, a horizontal-sliding sash window upper R and a segmental-headed 2-light casement below. The wing has an external stack, with an added outshut on its N side. Windows are casements beneath stone lintels. The N-S arm of the linking wing has C19 detail. It has a window centre-R lighting the service stair, and placed above a lower gabled projection with a half-glazed door on the R and 3-light casement L, both under stone segmental heads. On the R side of the projection is a pebble-dashed external stack. The 2-storey N elevation of the linking wing is 4-window with C19 casements, and has a 2-storey projection housing lavatories at the R end, abutting the cross wing of the main house.
