MATERIALS: Limestone ashlar with a slate roof.

PLAN: A compact symmetrical block with low pitched hipped roof, and with entrances in set back porches.

The central bay is slightly set back, and the blind light has a cill and brackets. There is a plain eaves band, deep eaves on rafter brackets, and a central ashlar stack.
