front lateral stack heating Hall, all with brick shafts. 2 storeys throughout.
Front: 5-window range; front lateral stack with 3 main set-offs immediately to

(erected 1984), 1st floor windows: two 2-light windows to the left of stack in
enlarged C19 openings, 2 single and 2-light windows to right with early-C19

outer lights with 6 panes, the centre light with 3; another to right of stack and a

Interior: plank and muntin screens to either side of through-passage, chamfered
muntins and bressumer, shallow stops below; straight joints, morticed and pegged

fireplace (now concealed) with ovolo-moulded jambs. Deeply chamfered reinforced
beam with step stops. Stud and wattle screen divides Hall from inner room.
