up above the eaves (or parapet) to make 4 storeys and is a tripartite stone treatment in the Ionic Order, of pilasters for the 2 upper storeys. The ground storey (of podium height and character) is rusticated and has round arched windows, with, above, a balustraded balcony. The first floor has full height sashes but is simple in treatment. The whole is surmounted by a pediment above and behind which is the previously mentioned elaborate cupola.
