roofs, brick stacks. Front elevation has entrance in early Gothic Revival style.

one with plain fixed glazing. At the rear, the projecting wing has 2 double-hung
sash windows and a larger window with Gothic style glazing on the ground floor, and

up, the roof has been flattened in pitch and slated, on each side of the projecting
wing. These roofs have half-dormers with double-hung sashes. Internally, the stair,
