additions). Cement rendered; slate roof behind parapet; stacks
with rendered shafts with moulded cornices.

Porch-cum-conservatory on entrance elevation is post 1866,

c1860s block projects to right and is glazed with 4-pane
sashes with horizontal glazing bars.
INTERIOR: Very complete and unaltered: chimneypieces replaced
in the c1930s, but original joinery and plasterwork survive
and a good stair with cast-iron panels to the balustrade. An
unusually unaltered Torquay villa of this date.
