at rear, on west side, a long narrow wing. 2 storeys, with garret in main block.
The latter is 3 windows wide with a fourth window in the lower eastern section. The

of stucco and contain wooden mullioned-and-transomed casements, the lower sections
of which have 2 panes each; the outer windows are of 3 lights, the centre window in

bracing and swept overhanging eaves carried on brackets. Third-storey window in
gabled projection has pointed head and raised surround. At either side of it is a
gabled dormer window with bargeboards and overhanging eaves; C20 glazing. The lower
right-hand section of the building has a ground-storey window with a triangular
head;this now has intersecting, diagonally-set glazing-bars, but may have been a
doorway originally. In second storey is a similar window in a steep gable which
breaks the eaves line; the glazing consists of a 2-light casement with 2 panes per
light, each light having a triangular head with a diamond-shaped pane in the window
head. Garden railings and gate (included in the listing) are original : cast-iron
with lily-heads to the uprights.
