semicircular arches with helmeted heads mounted on keys flanked by swags.
Recessed sash windows in plain surrounds but principal windows of the
pavilions rise through 3rd and 4th floors with segmental arched architraves
and open pediments on consoles and have ornate cast iron balconettes. The
pavilions are emphasised by channelled quoins and heavy attics with open
segmental pediments. Bracketed main cornice with balustraded parapet over
main range. Mansard has lead-dressed oval dormers flanked by scrolls and
lead capped ridges. Jermyn Street return has small vermiculated tooling to
