Under this is a canted bay window with tile roof, with three lights to the front and one to each side. The stone gutter has carved figures at the corners. Above is a narrow opening with a sandstone band above. This is inscribed: "MDCCCLIIII". To the right the main part of the facade is of one bay with a 2-light window. To its left is a chimney.
