Steps up to side entrance flanked on no 4 by pilasters with entablature, cornice and former blocking course, panelled door and overlight; panelled door and overlight only on no 2, which has a mansard roof to entrance wing. The entrance wing of no 4 is of two storeys with flat-arched window with original sash above entrance. Attached to entrance wing of no 4 is no 4A, the former garden house, three storeys over basement, octagonal in plan.

Cusped stone panel with rebus of Prior Bolton rest below sill of west window. North window has recessed sashes. Brick band between floors.
