with plaster infill. Ashlar dressings. Clay tile roofs. Symmetrical
single-storeyed cross plan. S elevation: central gabled block is taller than

shelters 3 pairs of French windows. Attic has 3 openings with louvred
shutters. Flanking wings each have doorway under flat-roofed open porch
adjacent to central gable, and 2-light mullioned window. Porches have
ornamental timber balustrading to roofs. Other elevations have large mullion
and transom windows. Side wings have tall slightly projecting brick chimney
stacks to N elevation, both with ornamental moulded shafts. Gables have deep
verges with plain bargeboards and moulded drop finials. Dairy stands in
