detailed and carefully proportioned Italianate design. High quality masonry, the
6 bay front is set back with carriage sweep. Two storeys and attic. Dressed

wider and with very shallow projection. Double panelled doors with semi-circular

architrave surrounds and keystones. Rising from the sill course, above the sill of

between the fluted console brackets supporting the projecting eaves cornice. Moulded
cornice chimneys set above.
