Crowning cornice and blocking course with large brackets. Plain square-headed top floor windows (sashes replaced by casements); long brackets of cornice frame windows. Second floor windows have shouldered stuccoed architraves. In each left hand first floor bay, except in No 2 where there is a rectangular bay window, there is a tall French casement with architrave and with balcony before it, the latter supported by brackets descending to either side of doorway below. Right hand first floor bays with storeyed canted bay windows descending to basement level and with dentil courses and keystones. Left hand ground floor bays with round-headed former doorways with pilasters and entablature, except for No 2 (main entrance) which has square-headed doorway. Modern double-glazed sash windows.
