dressings and continuous ground and first floor dripmoulds. Simulated
Cotswold slate roof with moulded stone copings to gables and parapets,
gables with ball or steeple eave and ridge finials, also tall stone
ridge stacks with moulded cornices, and decorated lead gutters.
Embattled parapets with ridgeback copings to three bay windows
on main front. Two storeys, irregular fenestration. U-plan with
gated courtyard between the ranges to south end. Neo-Tudor style.
Main elevation has gabled two storey porch to north with embattled
bay windows to either side, each with a gable set back above. To
south of the southern bay window is a wide bay with a similarly
wide embattled bay window beyond, also with a gable set back above
it. Recessed to south of this is a gabled bay with a semi-circular
bay window. The porch has a moulded four-centred arched doorcase
with dripmould, flanked by tall pilasters with steeple finials
and with an elaborately carved stone coat of arms above. Inside
the porch is a simple four-centred arched doorcase with studded
wooden door. To either side of the porch are 2-light recessed
and chamfered mullion and transomed windows and beyond, in the

circular bay is a 6-light recessed and chamfered mullion window
with two major mullions, and above to north in wide bay window,
