Pedimented and slightly-projecting entrance bays flanking centre: original sliding doors set in rusticated semi-circular arches with cartouches to keys and scrolled knees to rusticated pilasters framing 4-light first- floor windows and second-floor lunettes with aprons and rising to meet open pediments with swags to tympanae. Canted 2-storey bay to left with similar fenestration. Offices to left of 2-storeys; 4- window range with roughcast first-floor: semi-circular arched doorway to right adjoining slightly-projecting bay with gablet and gabled bay with canted 2-storey bay window to left; casement windows, those to ground floor transomed. Tower has swept coping to parapet and open pediments over top-floor semi-circular arched windows with stone voussoirs.
