Exterior: 2 storeys and attic. 3 bay north front, symmetrical except for
the window immediately to the right of the central doorway. The first
floor has 3 large early C19 12-pane sashes with rebuilt red brick segmental
arches. The ground floor 12-pane sashes are large and are set in rendered
elliptically-headed recesses; the sashes on the ground floor are C20
replacements. The central doorway also has a similar arch above, the wide
wooden lattice porch has thin columns with spiral trelliswork land
entablature with a latticework frieze and modillion cornice. The doorway
has C20 glazed double doors and a 12-pane sash to the right within the
porch. Cut through the deep eaves there are three late C20 segmental-
headed lead-clad dormers with 12-pane sashes.
Similar left hand (east) and rear (south) garden elevations with garden
doors at the centre instead of the portico. The right hand (west)
elevation facing the service yard has 4 bays of sashes with glazing bars.

expected in a house of this size and quality, such as a good staircase,
chimneypieces and other joinery.
