The crescent elevation is thirty-one bays wide and faces onto a gently sloping green. It is similar in style to the Royal Hospital Chelsea with buff brick, stone quoins, sash windows and a central Tuscan portico and a deeply projecting modillion cornice. The roof has prominent chimneys and a central cupola. Access to the apartments is on north elevation which has a continuous balcony and a chinoiserie balustrade.
The commission was for a private client who has a close association with the Mission church in Danbury. The inscription on the portico frieze is from Psalm 36, YOUR LOVE, O LORD REACHES TO THE HEAVENS, YOUR FAITHFULNESS TO THE SKIES.
