Present building, now a nursing home, has a south façade of five bays, two storeys with lower wing to west, and a tiny central pediment. Unremarkable late Georgian.
But at east end façade a wing projects southwards, now totally modern but on an old photograph (from Hingham Society), shown with stepped gable, rusticated quoins and two Tudor style windows in gable wall.
Impression is of a Victorian Tudor style wing, but why should this be built in such a position, and why should the Georgian façade be symmetrical only with the wing there?
Suggests a 17th-century original building 'retudorised', perhaps representing the original house.

The mapped location of this record has been corrected. For some reason it was previously mapped as a rectangular polygon at TG 0219 0202.
