It is 11 bays wide, with a ground floor of rusticated stonework. The centre six bays have a portico with iconic columns. The grounds were landscaped by Capability Brown between 1766-72 at a cost of £5000. The artist and publisher Edward Orme (1774-1848), was one of four artist brother's who entered the R.A. Schools in 1793.
