architraves with radial glazing bars to fanlights; wood cornice; pediment over-
entrance; curved roof having hipped-roofed clerestorey with decorative

Root beds have low retaining walls with chamfered tile coping. Rear: right-hand
garden house has 4-panel door and 2 old small-pane windows; rest of range has
late C20 doors and small-pane windows, roof heightened, and left-hand section
