The end bays break forwards slightly and have channelled rustication to both floors; each has a round-headed doorway at ground floor with rusticated voussoirs and carved keystone, and a doorcase composed of granite blocked Tuscan columns with sandstone entablature and open-segmental pediment, decorated wrought-iron gates and fanlights (the latter mostly concealed by modern signs), at 1st floor a 12-pane sashed window with triple-keystone, pedimented architrave and small balustraded balcony, and at parapet level a segmental pediment containing a cartouche with swags.
