segmental recesses on the ground floor. Secondary doors to

windows have leaded lights. The gabled dormers are only
narrowly divided by the plane of the roof which continues

convey the rainwater to a trough at first floor sill level.
The trough has bead-and-reel enrichment and channels water

show Art Nouveau influence. Timber fittings, including
panelled doors with carved roundels above and brass
ironmongery are all of a high standard.
