centre part, of 3 window range, breaks forward slightly. A central doorway
has a stone doorcase with pediment on console brackets. Four dormers.
The north-west front has 5 window range and a central French window under
a C19 verandah porch with wide eaves. Three dormers. A raised brick
band extends across the fronts between the storeys. The south-east front
has 2 large 2-storeyed splayed bays with 3 window range and 4 window
range between the bays. Seven dormers. There are a number of tall chimney
stacks with cornices. The interior has a sitting room with neo-classical
