Those at first storey are of 16 panes and those of the outer 2 dormer windows are of 12 panes in unequal sashes. The round central dormer is of 8 panes. The main door is of 6 panels, glazed at top, with a rectangular fanlight above and a large arched and bracketted canopy.

The gable wall at left (the approach elevation) is plain apart from two 4-pane attic windows. Glass conservatory at left with small rear access yard to service wing.
