roof with centre bay of 11 windows raised to 5 storeys under segmental pediment;
return elevations with similar detailing run back to plainer rear on Eastcastle

mezzanine by stone arcade. Upper floors have elaborately carved stone window
surrounds, those on 3rd floor as giant oeil-de-boeuf with foliage enrichment;
