As one would expect due to its historical importance and special architectural features it is designated with Grade II listed status. Its stunning facade features beautifully regimented fenestration with broad stone steps leading up to a charming porticoed entrance canopy with a decorative fanlight.Internally rooms are of stately proportions, with a number of notable embellishments.

In addition, there is beautiful parquet flooring, a most elegant ôeasy risingô staircase with galleried half-landings, as well as several exquisite fireplaces. At this period the ôAdams Brothersô were at the height of their fame ô and there is every reason to believe that several of the fireplaces are their work.The principal accommodation is spread laterally over three main storeys plus a superb lower ground level.
