1860. Stuccoed, slate roof. 1860s Renaissance details added to elevations of
early C19 character. 4 storeys and mansard with 2 tiers of dormers. 4-window

virtually blind return from Park front, a canted bay and recessed wing of
3 close set windows; 3 windows and blind bay to east side. Chanelled stucco
porch projecting to east with Ionic columned pedimented doorway. Park front
