in left window in architrave under scroll pediment; sill bands to C20 sashes

overlight on cornice; pilastered parapet above in front of paired late C19
sashes under C19 scrolled pediment with raised central panel; overlapping gable
copings, with ball finials on right front gable; corniced ashlar chimneys on

Interior: architraves, 4-panelled doors and some panelled window-shutters;
