eaves cornice in front, plastered coved cornice behind. 3 square dormers
with later casements. Brownish brick with red brick dressings, ie quoins,
lst floor band, window jambs and gauged brick ground floor window arches.
Original croisee windows with casements mostly renewed although 3
original iron ones remain. Modern double door, with plain rectangular
fanlight, in moulded architrave. Doorcase of flat pilasters, swell

turned balusters. Several rooms with original panelling, including
entrance hall, L-shaped with segmental arch over. 6 early fireplaces,
