Detached house. 1856-61. Developed by Henry Rydon and probably

bond with dressings of red brick and stucco or stone, roof of
Welsh slate. Three storeys over basement, three-window range.
Steps up to round-arched entrance in single-storey wing set
back to right: the head alternately of red and yellow brick
with an outer moulding of embattled billets; foliage impost
band; machicolated parapet to return only. The main front has
a shallow bay to the basement, ground and first floors. The
ground-floor has a pair of round-arched windows with heads of
alternating red and yellow brick under a moulding of embattled
billets, linked by an impost band of flora and fauna; 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 angle;
red brick cornice band to coped parapet; two second-floor
windows with wedge lintels and chamfered reveals, the chamfer
stopped in the stonework; brick dentils to boxed eaves; hipped
roof with side stacks, now truncated; single-storey extension
to the left.
