with red mathematical tiles and partly with weather tiles, but one strip
of timber-framing is still visible. Tiled roof. A few original windows
with wooden mullions and diamond panes. Some C18 sash windows with glazing
bars intact, and modern windows. Brick chimney stacks. Doorcase on south
side with caryatid columns and four-centred arch. On the north side is
a doorcase with a flat hood over supported by grotesque caryatids and
a 10 panelled door. Good staircase, panelling, fireplaces and ceiling
