This is flanked by a 6 over 6 sash on the right and a blind recessed panel on the left. Three windows above, a 2 over 2 pane sash to the left and two modern casements with higher cills to the right. The roof is also hipped on this elevation and there is a large multi-flue stack visible behind. Rear elevation nor seen.
