Asymmetrical 2 window front, gabled to the front at the right with a short wing roofed at right angles slightly set back to the left with the roof carried down as a catslide to form a porch supported on a timber arch. Front door into left return of right hand block, which has a timber framed gable, 3-light first floor stone mullioned window, a 4-light bay window on the ground floor and a 1-light stone window to the left probably lighting the entrance lobby. The right return of the house, adjacent to the service drive to stoodleigh court, has 2 ground floor stone windows, 1 on either side of the asymmetrical projecting stack. The most complete and unspoiled estate cottage in the former stoodleigh estate, the style clearly designed to harmonise with stoodleigh court (doe).
