House, now flats. c.1865. Rendered brickwork with ashlar
dressings and slate roof. Square in plan with central
staircase, two storeys and a large addition in a similar style
to the left. Three by three bays with stone plinth, banded
rustication to ground floor, first-floor sill band, blocking
course, eaves cornice and parapet. Symmetrical about a
2-storey projecting porch with large window opening flanked by
pilasters over an Ionic tetrastyle recessed porch, the
cornice continuing into the first floor sill band. Total of

The symmetry is broken by two later windows to the left first
floor and a later bay window which is nevertheless in
keeping. The 3-bay garden elevation is dominated by a
2-storey bow window with a sash window to each side on each
storey. A large belvedere of a slightly later date
dominates the roof and has oval corner lights, rows of lights
separated by pilasters, and an elaborate cast-iron ridge.
The chimneys are also prominent features. The 4-bay wing to
the left is detailed in a similar manner. INTERIOR: fine
twisted baluster stair with carved newel column, oval
belvedere light above and wall paintings.
