ground floor windows of brick ranges and the balustraded parapet is carried
over the pavilions. Plain recessed sashes to upper floors. The central pavilion
has angle pilasters to bays flanking hexastyle portico and the giant order in
antis on the end pavilions creates a 2-storey loggia in front of the windows.

semicircular arched windows between pilaster strips. Continuous attic cornice
and blocking course. The York Gate return has giant porch feature with
