Try taking the shot a little earlier 10-25 minutes after sunset when there is still a little light/colour in the sky, this will add detail to the brickwork of the building and the roof and roof tiles.

Use a tripod (you really need one for night photography), switch to manual and set your ISO to 100, F8 and an exposure time of 1 second, increase your shutter speed as it gets darker and check your results after each shot. Use a cable release, a self timer or a remote control during your exposure as pressing any buttons on your camera may cause camera shake.

Here is a shot taken in Buxton which illustrates the results you can get if you follow the above guidelines:-

I hope this helps.
