The three flanking bays to each side have blind round arches to ground floor, the central arch with niche, three 6-pane -sashes above. The outer bays have elaborate detailing: full-height round-arched recess with triple keystone has tripartite glazed opening at ground-floor level with Doric columns in antis, triglyph frieze with paterae in the entablature; a Diocletian window above. The openings all have small-paned glazing, central glazed door to ground floor. Cornice, blocking course and lions as south front. The north and west fronts have ashlar dressings to blind arches, and small-paned windows. Stable yard south front: there is a central round-headed archway flanked by round-arched windows on each side; in a projecting pedimented central bay. Blind arcades on ground floor with 6-panel doors and sashes with glazing bars. Ashlar first-floor band. Central Diocletian window with flanking 6-pane sashes to first floor.

William Belwood's design was chosen for the east front of the building, but the elaborate south front may be the work of John Carr or Robert Adam.
