The main front has a shallow bay to the basement, ground and

windows with heads of alternating red and yellow brick under a
moulding of embattled billets, linked by a foliage impost
band; the first floor has three windows set in a round-arched
stucco arcade of panelled pilasters, foliage capitals and
unmoulded archivolt with pointed extrados; first-floor balcony
corbelled out on three oversailing courses of bricks set at an
