conservatory; the main stairs are situated to the rear of the entrance hall. 2

panelled door under rectangular traceried fanlight, and flanking 4-pane sashes;
cornice with dentil frieze with triglyphs, and pilasters. Pilaster quoins. 2
external end stacks; that to the right could indicate the existence of an older
core to the house. Both end gable walls treated as pediments. Extending to the

separately gabled, and forming a 2-window range with 12-pane hornless sashes to
