Ashlar and snecked Bavarian grey tufa with rock-faced red sandstone dressings. Free Romanesque Style. Large entrance porch, originally the base of a 4 storey tower and a short 3 window range set back to left. Steps up to a timber panelled door, multi panelled lower half with hollow moulded frames to 3 upper panels. Splayed ashlar reveals. Heavily voussoired sandstone round arch over lintel and imposts with free acanthus ornament in a band. Similar relief carving in tympanum with hollow and roll moulded surrounds. Massive battered sandstone plinth to porch. Sandstone course at key level. Porch truncated with stepped parapet. Left return has a tall casement in a reveal. 3 window range to left has a similar plinth with heavily blocked sandstone surrounds to vertical casements. Coped parapet. At left end a wall breaks forward with a remnant of scrolled acanthus relief carving at top. Lululand, named after Herkomer's second wife Lulu Griffiths, is the only European work by H.H.Richardson.
