This two-story, side-gabled Jacobean/Elizabethan structure includes two towers and multiple gables. The building is composed of rough-faced ashlar with limestone surrounds. The front elevation is distinguished by two castellated, octagonal towers with narrow, hooded casement windows. The towers flank a central gable with drive-through passage for automobiles below. Above the gable is a decorated oriel window with quatrefoil panels; above the oriel windows is a small crest. The gable ends are parapetted with capstones and finials.
