Rear, canal facade: blocked door (formerly window) flanked by narrow windows left; far right: round-arched opening with C20 window frame, one window above and top-floor window blocked. INTERIOR: not seen in detail: front entrance is into staircase lobby, a straight flight with bulbous turned balusters rises to first floor.
