a shaped lintel, moulded frame and the battened door is nail studded with
ornamental strap hinges. The gable has dentilled bargeboards and a pendant
finial. The bay to the right of the porch has a 3-light casement in the gable,
a small 2-light casement to the left on the first floor and a 6-light casement
