consists of the entrance front (to the left) and the gabled
end of the projecting front wing to the right with very deep
verges and scalloped bargeboards. Entrance is sheltered by the
end of a verandah with balcony over that extends across the
end and left return of the wing. Good doorcase to front door
with openwork cast-iron columns and a greek key moulding to
the jambs and lintel which had a central carved or cast panel
with flowers. The cast-iron columns also serve to support a
small first-floor projection above and are the beginning of
the verandah which has a plastered rib vault in the bay in
front of the door, forming a porch. 2-leaf front door the
upper panels glazed. One-light window to left of front door;
2-light window to first floor.
Verandah on cast-iron columns with moulded capitals, 4-bays to
the end of the wing and 4 bays to the return. Timber arches
between the columns have pierced spandrels and keyblocks. The
verandah has a plastered ceiling with moulded cornices and a
cast-iron balustrade to the balcony above with intersecting
pointed arched balusters. French window on the ground floor in
a style to match the other windows. Similar 2-light window
onto balcony above has pretty timber tented porch on pierced
timber brackets. Gabled timber oriel window on brackets to
attic with bargeboards finished with ogees, window glazed with
small panes with margin lights.
The right return of the wing has 2 similar first-floor windows

high-transomed lights (no margin panes) and one similar ground
and one first-floor window. 6-panel under curved corrugated
iron hood on wrought-iron brackets.

interest.
