bays projecting slightly and rising into turrets with an extra storey.
North elevation: plinth. Ground floor: continuous rounded arcade with
archivolts and impost band, all now infilled in matching stonework with
central, leaved, C19 6-panel door below 4-pane overlight in architrave with
pulvinated frieze and modillion cornice; the other bays each with sash
window with glazing bars and joggled lintel. First floor: 8-pane sash
windows with joggled lintels. Modillion cornice. Balustraded parapet
between the turrets, continues blind across them. Hipped roof to main

windows with glazing bars, the rest blank. Arcaded main floor has in each
bay a sash window with glazing bars with joggled lintel. Attic storey has
6-pane sash windows with joggled lintels, the cornice, parapet and turrets
as north-west side. Left return: made apsidal when chapel formed, and with
matching attic windows. Interior: chapel to left of entrance in Italianate
style with marble dado and paired Corinthian pilasters, ornate cornice, and
classical window surrounds with stained-glass "shutters"; the ceiling is a
barrel vault divided into bays by decorated arches, and with side
intersecting vaults from attic windows and triple vault over apsidal
liturgical east (actually north-east) end. The interior achieves a most
successful conversion into a private chapel. John Harris, "The Dundas
Empire", Apollo magazine, September 1967. In front of the north-west
