The ornate front door surround is complimented by stone mullioned windows with leaded glass and decorated sash windows. Many rooms feature attractive open fireplaces, cornicing, panelling and dado rails. Wood panelled reception hall with attractive patterned tiled floor and grand oak staircase.

A major asset is the unusually large town garden which lies to the rear and on one side.
