stair hall with reception room on lower side (right) and service room against bank on
the left.
2 storeys. Regular 2-window front elevation on lower side with battered base and
brick segmental arches to openings. Single storey canted bay window on ground floor
with three 24-pane sashes. Two 20-pane sashes on first floor.
