A complete C18 facade in the Gothick manner: sash windows with pointed arched heads; the upper sashes have thick glazing bars in the form of intersecting tracery (a similar but smaller window over the entrance has an ogee head). C18 entrance doorway: 6-panelled door and an entablature on pilasters, the open pediment has within it a semi-circular fanlight with curved bars.
