Two recessed chamfered 2-light mullion windows linked by continuous hoodmould incorporating recessed blank armorial shield to centre on first floor and cross-windows with dripstones to left and right on ground floor. Central gabled ashlar porch with corbel table and half-glazed door in outer shouldered arch. Small ogee-arched gable between 2 gables, right of which slightly projects. Valley stacks to left and right each have 3 detached diagonal shafts with moulded capping. 2-bay returns with recess for downpipe to centre have 2-light mullions linked by continuous hoodmoulds continued from front to first floor and segmental-headed mullioned and transomed bay windows in 3 lights to ground floor.
