building consists of a 2-storey rectangle, open on ground floor. The ground
floor is of stone, with 6-bay front to west with chamfered rusticated angle
piers and 3/4 engaged Doric columns, between openings, supporting entablature
with curved frieze, which is carried round building. The upper part brick with
stone entablature and 6 windows with stone architrave and cills. The principal
decoration is on the south front which has 3 arched openings (3 central arches)
between the angle piers on ground floor, and Corinthian pilasters on upper part
supporting entablature and pediment. The 2 upper windows have stone aprons
with richly carved swags and drops, flanking a central stone niche with elaborate
cartouche to base and statue of Prince George of Denmark. The north front repeats
this general design but with swag and drop ornament to base of niche which has
a statue of Queen Anne. The building was extended 2 bays to the east in 1829,
repeating the general design of the older part.
