gabled, glazed porch. 4-pane sashes, with intermediate glazing bars removed,

Steeply-pitched roof with raised verges and corbelled-out brick kneelers.
Tall end stacks, originally on ridge of each span, now rise halfway up front
and rear pitch: front stacks original; rear stacks rebuilt. Wing has first-
