storey and attic. 5 bays. Wide eaves and moulded cornice to steep hipped
old tile roof. Chamfered quoins. Projecting plinth with moulded stone top.
Moulded stone string over ground floor windows. 2 tall narrow, gabled dormer

beaded inner edges. Central modern glazed door inserted in moulded stone
surround with carved stone shell hood on carved stone scroll brackets. Contemporary
