band; outer houses have cornices below parapets and mansard
roofs. Ground floor with channelled rustication with moulded
string at first-floor level. Round-headed doorways to outer
blocks and round-headed windows, mostly glazed with plate
glass sashes. First-floor windows have moulded architraves,
some retaining probably original 12-pane sashes, some reglazed
with later timber sashes.
The middle block is more ornate with an anthemion balcony on
iron brackets to the first floor and high-transomed French
