fish-scale bands and ornamental ridge tiles, gabled with bargeboards and spike finials; stone chimney stack. 'T'-plan;
single storey, north elevation of 4 bays, of which bay 4 is the projecting end gable of a western crosswing. Plinth;
chamfer- mullioned windows of 3 lights, with shoulder-arched lights bays 1 and 2, and trefoil cusped to bay 4, this
last set under relieving arch into the tall gable, with a trefoil vent over; to bay 3 a matching pitched roof porch

match, the outer bays having single cusped lancets, bay 2 a projecting lower gable with 2-light plate-traceried window

and 2 rows square section iron rods set diagonally, with Gothic style cast iron intermediate posts; corner curved, with
