Four stone gabled dormers set in parapet. Steep gable end slate roof, crow stepped gables,grouped shaft external chimney stacks flanking. Projecting centre bay treated as tower with bartizan turrets flanking at attic level, pointed slate roofs. Tall doorway with weathered coping of basement stepped up over as label. Canted oriel bay window above. Otherwise single and paired windows with roll moulded edges to reveals. Gothic cast iron area railings. False stone cannon water spouts to tower. Return to East Parade has flanking crow stepped gables and similar but plainer detailing. Gabled dormers. Long range of ornate glazed attic lights and sky lights to roof down each side, behind Peckover Street front.
