Main gable has asymmetrical roofline, swept down low to the left hand side. 4-light casement window with shutters in main gable, the 2-light upper window off-set. NE elevation: roof sweeps down low over lean-to projection of ground floor to the right (with altered openings). 2-light casement window with shutters alongside this outshut in the main body of house, with small paired round-arched openings alongside. The outshut is wrapped around a long catslide dormer which has 2-light casement windows at either end. 2-light casement window to either side of the chimney in the gable wall. SW elevation: roof swept down over loggia to the right, with French windows recessed. Low cat-slide dormer in the roof above.
