Tall segmentally-arched windows, with stone sills continuous in upper storey, and decorative corbelling to eaves. Single-storey office block to left of tower. seven bays with round-arched windows and parapet with central segmental pediment incorporating name and date. Name also in parapet of tower, which projects by one storey about: the roofline, and has paired round-arched windows. ltalianate detailing to office: block and tower.
