The SE front has 12-pane sash to left and blank window to right on first floor, off-set to right, over ground floor door and small 2-light casement. Cambered heads with cut Cilgerran stone voussoirs and slate sills. The SW gable end has outside stone steps to ledged door flanked by 12-pane sash to left and blocked window (formerly 12-pane) to right, all with cambered heads, cut-stone voussoirs and keystones. In gable, keyed roundel with slate plaque `A Counting Room Builded ad 1832 for Morgan Jones Esq'. Rear NW side has larger upper windows, casement pair to left and 16-pane sash to right, and two ledged doors below. Cut-stone voussoirs to cambered heads.
