Timber sash and case windows with 6-pane upper cases, 2-pane lowers. Exposed rafters to grey slate roof; small Velux window to W elevation. Corniced cement-rendered end stacks.

Statement of Interest

B-group with St Germains House, Coach House, Cottage and Dovecot. An earlier lodge would probably have been built during the late 18th century when additions were being made to the earlier 18th century St Germains House. There was also an additional West Lodge facing [demolished]. The present lodge is most likely a remodelling of the earlier lodge however retaining the earlier classical porch. The East Lodge forms an integral part of the former St Germains estate which developed on the site of the Bethlehemite Hospital.
