It is mostly 2-storeys plus attics. The entrance front tower has a steep slate spire, polygonal buttresses, a polygonal stair turret to the rear, and paired open arches to the top stage. The entrance doorway has 3 orders of polished granite and stone shafts with floral capitals; double-leaf panelled doors. There is a largely unaltered interior; the entrance hall has a Gothic fireplace and a 3 arch arcade with stained windows to the left. Principal rooms in the main block include a Drawing Room and Dining Room with Gothic fireplaces and arcading to the windows; an octagonal Billiard room and Library. There are neo-classical reliefs to each side of first floor stair hall.
