five 6-pane sashes in moulded architraves with sills. Moulded eaves and
raked cornices. Coped parapet. In the pediment is a blank shield enriched
with foliage over crossed horns and a riband. Garden front: 3 storeys, 7

Second floor: seven 6-pane sashes with sills, all under slightly cambered

Hipped roofs. Interior: the interior survives complete and is of
exceptional quality. Cut-string stair with patterned tread ends, fluted
balusters, and moulded handrail rising through one flight and returning, to
a similarly treated balcony, in 2 cantilevered flights. Most of the doors -
of 6 beaded panels - survive and are hung in enriched architraves with
ornate overdoors in the Adam style. The principal rooms retain elaborate
fireplaces in polychrome marble. The chief interest of the house lies in
the plasterwork which is plentiful and of excellent quality: the soffit of
the stair is elaborately treated as are the ceilings of all the principal
rooms, which are also panelled.
