Flanking the centre, the ground floor has 2 very large canted bay windows (probably mid C19 additions), each of 4 lights sashed without glazing bars, with a cornice and a blocking course with a central upstand, and the 1st floor has tripartite sashed windows with raised sills and wedge lintels. Side wall chimneys. Left return wall has one blind window on each floor, and a small sashed window with glazing bars; right-hand return wall altered (former service wing at this end demolished); rear has small lean-to in centre, a 4-pane stairwindow above this, a 16-pane sash to the left and 2 at 1st floor, and steps down to a cellar doorway (now blocked). Linked to the west end by a short screen wall is the former coach-house, a small square single-storey building, with quoins, a large square window, and pyramidal roof. INTERIOR: cellar ceiling supported by slender cast-iron columns; dog-legged staircase with cast-iron ornamental open-work balusters.
