projecting wings with hipped roofs and storey bands, late C19 four-pane
sashes within C18 surrounds; central 6-panelled door flanked by large

a 3-bay arcade of semi-circular arches with raised keys and cornice capped
by bases of former finials, stone sundial to centre of main range at first
floor level inscribed "TEMPUS FUGIT". Attached single-storey, 3-bay wing

stable block. North elevation: Provincial Baroque. 3 storeys with
storey bands and partly balustraded parapet turned down at each end in
