A symmetrical 2-storey stucco facade of 1.3.1 windows, the centre being recessed behind a portico of 2 columns in antis, the sides having rusticated walling between the inner and outer pilasters. The Order is Doric, with widely-spaced triglyphs and plain columns. The upper windows on each side are rectangular, above small arched doorways, each with voussoirs. The interior wall (of the recessed centre) is in red brick with upper arched windows and lower square openings; a central doorway, and may be 1860 changes on original 5 window front.
