top lit, has elegant mahogany handrail and decorative iron
balusters. Some rooms and top of stair on first floor have
ornamental plaster cornices. 3 original fireplaces with reeded

elevations, except the S implies its original continuation
round the whole building. The horizontal ashlar lining
(without verticals) appears fresh and C20 and is exactly
similar on the C20 extension. The front elevation was most
probably originally stuccoed and lined and has been completely
re-done in the C20. The parapet was probably removed at the
same time.
