Historic Environment Record entry
A very ornate and fine late Victorian house with high quality original features. Main house with rear, north extensions, west wing, east stables and outbuildings and rear, north pigsties/outbuilding.
Main house: two-storey three-bay, the centre bay of which is a three-storey turreted entrance.
Openings are highly decorated renaissance-style fired terracotta segments some of which are arched and paired, and others form canted bays on dwarf-walls. The terracotta segments that compose the openings are also found in West Park Avenue and Dicq Road, among other locations. They appear to have been imported in the late 19th century and were probably made by Jennings and Co, of Poole.
Original late 19th century sash windows and original door with stained-glass detail.
