front window panel and blind narrow panels to sides, the mouldings turned out for
short strip before returning to the wall plane. On the first floor there are
simply moulded panels corresponding. Tripartite curved sashes to ground floor.
Curved single sashes to first floor in incised panelled architraves with moulded
