further stucco band between the ground and 1st storey windows.
The northern part of the front, beyond the central entrance

been made into one. A recessed door with 6 raised fielded
panels has a fine fanlight with decorative glazing and a
wooden doorcase with panelled reveals, pilasters and an open
pediment. 2 arched cellar openings within the plinth.

storey with turned balusters, closed strings and wreathed
moulded handrail. Windows with internal panelled shutters;
6-panelled doors with eared architraves.
On the top storey the balustrade to the stair is in Chinese
style. In the northern ground storey room, a fine Greek
Revival plaster frieze and cornice with circular paterae
between the triglyphs. The top storey of the front range is an
addition with a C19 roof; a lower rear range at right-angles
has a C18 side-purlin roof.
