The house is dominated by a tower that rises two stories above the original main house. Its striking Rhenish-helm roof may copy that of Sompting Church in W. Sussex. Many other architectural features include finials capping the roofs of the tower, the porch and gables, yellow and red patterned and cobbled brickwork, decorative leadwork, and arched windows. Internal features of note include arched windows in large bays with long views over the garden, high ceilings with decorative cornicing, spacious rooms, original marble fireplace and wonderful views from the tower as shown on the listing.

The accommodation amounts to about 3356 sq ft across three floors, with the addition of the two towers providing further space and unrivalled views. The house is entered on the ground floor via a glazed entrance which leads to the main sitting room and separate dining room; the latter leads to a kitchen/breakfast room, a cloakroom with w.c. and a utility room. On the lower ground floor there is a further reception room, a bedroom, shower room and a plant room. The rest of the bedrooms are situated on the first floor, including a very impressive principal bedroom with en suite bathroom, a further bedroom with en suite and two bedrooms sharing a family shower room. Above the principal bedroom there is also a dressing room, while the second and third floors of the tower comprise a study and a snug.

A highlight of this property is how well-hidden the entrance is: tucked away in the east of the town at the end of Malling Street. The driveway leads up to the property through its well-established woodland and, once at the top, it opens to allow for parking for several vehicles. The gardens and woodland amount to approximately 2.2 acres and are bordered by Malling Down Nature Reserve and the woodland adjoining Lewes Golf Club.
