3 storeys and attics, basement on south front to St. John Street. 3 by 3 wide
bays plus an angled corner bay. Arcaded ground floor altered on West front to

storey rounded oriel with a balustraded parapet before an elaborate 3-stage
pilastered gable backing on to a pavilion roof. The side bays have shallower

corner bay is an oriel, on a heavy rounded and moulded corbel, rising to a dome
