Waterpark House is distinctive for its finely carved timber doorcase, which retains its spoked fanlight and ornate sidelights. The house maintains much of its original character, despite its condition, as well as features such as the slate roof and sash windows. The fine outbuilding and limestone piers adds context to the site.
