plinth, first-floor cill band, moulded cornice and blocking course, and

Panelled rendered brick ridge stacks, one to left and 2 to right, and
integral painted brick lateral stack to rear. 3 bays; glazing bar
sashes (15-pane to ground floor), rectangular panels above ground-floor
window and blind box to central first-floor window. Central door with 6
raised and fielded panels (top 2 glazed), and flanking side lights with
raised and fielded panels beneath, divided by incised pilaster strips
with shallow consoles supporting frieze and cornice; panelled reveals

Ionic porch with paired unfluted columns, unfluted antae behind, full
entablature, and blocking course, raised and projecting to centre.
Left-hand return front: 3 storeys. 4 bays; slightly curved glazing
bar sashes with painted stone cills (16-pane to first floor with slightly
segmental heads). Ground floor with flat 12-pane sashes in end bays,
and shallow bow in second bay from left with tripartite glazing bar sash,
pilaster strips, and frieze. 6-panelled door (lower boarded flush and
upper 4 glazed) in second bay from right with radial fanlight, and
doorcase consisting of unfluted quarter columns and open triangular

above a pair of half-glazed doors. Interior not inspected. The present
occupant (January 1986) dates part of the building to 1860, but this
seems unlikely to refer to any of the principal building periods.
