The property was built by Lord Crewe in a Gothic Revival style, bearing the date 1872, and is fully deserving of its Grade II Listed status. It is constructed of brick on a stone plinth under a red and blue tiled roof with original octagonal clock tower. The property has distinctive blue brick detailing, white gothic barge boarding and stone dressed mullion windows. The house has recently undergone a comprehensive scheme of modernisation by the current owners and yet retains much of its original charm and character with an excellent blend of traditional features complemented by modern fitments.
