East front has a 2-storey canted central entrance bay with a
4-centred doorway and arched lancet side lights to the cants
right and left. First-floor window above is a 1/4 sash, also

One bay either side, both with shaped gables. Bay to left with

arched 2/2 sash. Gabled roofs.
The rear (west) elevation is less symmetrical: gabled 3-storey
