Paired doorways to centre with narrow light between, and tall flanking windows. Upper floor with 3 windows set on narrow sill band. Window and door openings with quoined surrounds and channelled heads with integral keystones. C20 joinery throughout. Oversailing eaves cornice, and tall ashlar chimneys rising from front roof slope to either side of position of central upper floor window. South elevation (facing towards site of former hall) similarly detailed, but with advanced centre bay below pediment, and with C19 single-storey addition to right-hand side. East elevation with single ground floor window, west elevation with C20 porch to right, blocked door to left and single upper-floor window lighting staircase.
