style. Rectangular double-depth plan.
3 storeys and 4 unequal bays; with a chamfered plinth, string
courses, pilasters and wall-shafts to the upper floors, a
panelled parapet with ball finials, and shaped upstands over
the 2nd and 4th bays, both flanked by obelisk finials and that
to the left with raised lettering "PLANE TREE". The ground
floor has a round-headed doorway to the 2nd bay, with an
architrave including Mannerist Ionic pilasters and a
strap-work parapet with obelisk finials; mullion-and-transom
windows of 8 lights to the left, 6 lights to the right, and a
bowed 8-light window to the 4th bay. On the upper floors the
2nd and 4th bays have coupled windows with Ionic colonnettes,
flanked by pilasters; the 1st bay has 2 windows and the 3rd
bay has one window; and all these windows are now C20 top-hung
casements with applied diamond lattice leading.
