Alternating quoins, ground floor band, ground- and first-floor cill bands, stepped eaves. Balustraded central steps to 6-panel door, with 4-pane overlight, in stone architrave with bracketed cornice and pediment. Original sash windows, 12-pane in main floors, shorter 6-pane in attic and basement. All windows under flat arches with cut voussoirs, those on ground floor with dripmoulds.

Upper floors hold giant round-arched recess whose long voussoirs radiate from the archivolt of a Venetian window with blank central panel (concealing room division within); blank outer recesses,2 corniced chimneys on eaves.

Grand garden front of 5 bays has rusticated basement forming big window voussoirs. Central Imperial perron to part-glazed door with overlight in pedimented Roman Doric doorcase with engaged columns. Glazing as on entrance front. All windows (except on top floor) in architraves with swell frieze and cornice, those on ground floor pedimented, the inner ones segmental. At right an added conservatory on the old basement site has an extended wall with pedimented gateway matching the garden wall (q.v.).
