symmetrical front has octagonal outer corner bays and a
central full-height entrance bay, connected by brick loggias

and side elevations.
The entrance bay has a segmental-arched doorway and panelled
double doors, and a mid C20 canopy; above are 3 narrow

belvedere extending from the roof. The flanking loggias have
open arches matching the windows, with a decorative

central canted 4-light bay. Narrow eaves dormers with hipped
foors over the corner and side windows.
