mullioned and transomed ground-floor window, and mullioned windows above.
Further left is another bay. At the far left is a gabled bay, jettied

left-hand return wall is a circular turret with conical roof. The range to
the right of the entrance and tower has a gabled projection with a central
buttress which incorporates a 1st floor oriel and is surmounted by a tall
multi-shafted chimney. The porte-cochère has moulded elliptical arches,
corner turrets with finials and angle buttresses, and 2 intersecting pitched
