The right-hand bay has a wide segmental-pointed 3-light transomed window at ground floor, with a glazed door in the centre and leaded stained glass in the top lights; and at 1st floor a small canted oriel on brackets. Left return (to Harbord Road) is entrance front. INTERIOR: not inspected. HISTORICAL NOTE: owned or occupied by one Dr Drysdale who installed heating and ventilation equipment which is said to be still in situ [Pevsner].
