set-in shafts with carved foliated caps from which springs a
panelled inner arch interrupted in the centre by an elongated
keystone with incised decoration; and at 1st floor a tall
sashed window with architrave including sunk-panel jambs and a
cornice on consoles. The wider outer bays have tall triple
round-headed sashed windows at ground floor with arcaded
architraves including foliated consoles to moulded heads which
have keystones with sunk panels; and large single
segmental-headed sashed windows at 1st floor with raised
moulded architraves. The 2nd floor has 3 short
segmental-headed 4-pane sashes with raised sills and
sill-blocks. Gable chimneys. Rear and INTERIOR not inspected.
