on brackets to doorway and tympanum grotesque. Family crest on peak finial.
Massive external stacks to either side of porch with octagonal shafts. 3
small windows with glazing bars to ground floor and 3 tall C18 2-light
mullion and transom windows (one blind) to first floor with metal casements,
some surviving leaded glazing and straight hoods on brackets. Similar hood
to centrally placed date plaque. To side and rear 2 C18 3-light mullion
and transom windows with metal casements to ground floor, one leaded 2-light
gable window and 2 C19 2-light mullion and transom windows to first floor.
Some surviving C19 moulded wooden rectangular hood moulds. Side addition
