finialled gables. Windows are 2 or 3-light casements in chamfered
4-centred headed brick reveals and under brick label mounds. Central
bay has an added brick gabled porch with semi-circular headed entrance
and door of 5 tall panels behind similar windows on south front but
blocked openings with segmental brick heads suggest original
