The outer parts of the facade are blank except for 2 storey bands, a round-headed fixed-light window to the left on the ground floor, and a similar blind recess to the right. In the centre on the 1st floor there are 3 round-headed glazing bar sashes separated by pilasters and with moulded archivolts. At 2nd floor level there is a round-headed window with a cornice hood on console brackets, with a small inserted window to its left. Within the broken pediment there is a round-headed attic window.
