North elevation sashes, at ground floor set into the rustication, at first floor each with moulded architrave under a small pedimented cornice, at second floor in plain rectangular openings.

Central entrance under round headed arch, the fanlight with small coloured glass lights. Fluted attached columns flank pair of narrow panelled doors, the upper panels glazed as the fanlight, the lower panels moulded. Right hand bay first and second floor sashes partly obscured. Interior not inspected but some rear windows retain shutters. Attached at rear, cast iron gate pier inscribed GROVE LODGE with bell marked servants, gate to area and elaborate spear head railings, as used in Crescent Grove, set on low rendered parapet wall. Attached at front, similar railings on low parapet wall, renewed beyond gateway, linking with rendered rusicated pier capped with stone ball finial and returning across front of building to plain pier. Matched by similar layout at Nos.28 & 29.
