Irregular fenestration, with 3-light, 3-tiered mullion and transom hall window to bay 2; large canted-bay windows with 32-pane sashes to bays 1 and 4. 24-pane sashes in flush wood architraves to both floors of bay 4; a 16-pane sash in recessed frame to bay 3, first floor, and a 12-pane sash in recessed frame to bay 1, first floor. Moulded eaves cornice. 4 ogee-curved gables, each with small bulls-eye window, 3 false. Ball finials to kneelers. Cluster of chimneys to right, external stack to left. Further chimneys on rear range.
