Five-light window to flanking ranges. Slightly recessed glazed attic storey. Slab recessed behind street facade with moulded vertical window to end elevation. Broad flanks each have panel of vertical strip windows with projecting masonry pilasters, flanked to either side by panels with narrow horizontal windows.
