Entrance asymmetrical to the centre bay; a 6-panelled door in a recessed round-headed brick opening. Four-pane sashes to each floor in each bay, those to the second floor shorter, and matching blind window recesses between. The centre bay has a c1920 square bay window replacing the centre window. Brick dentilled eaves. Brick stack on the W gable and opposite the entrance. Rear wing has an added extension on the W, with an iron hall window. The W gable end is slate hung.
