wing; yellow brick, 5 windows of 3 lights, central entrance in ornate arched
stone surround, with broad panelled pilasters, keystone to arch, cornice and
blocking course. Bracketed eaves, hipped slate roof. Return has simple 3-light
window to ground storey, with splayed head set in base of sunken frame which
