The main elevation is symmetrically disposed about a round-arched entrance with fanlight, which is reached by a short flight of steps. This entrance is topped by a broken segmental pediment supported by a pair of console brackets; the tympanum of pediment finishes in a scrolled finial. A pair of round-arched windows to either side of the entrance, the architraves with fluted keystone extends below sill to enclose a spandrel panel which is decorated with volutes and swags. The ornamental treatment of the ground floor dates to the C20, and in a late C18 French style.

On the ground floor of the return is one round-arched window similar to those already described, the rest are flat arched, each of those on the first and second floors have a cornice. There is a round-arched entrance set to the rear of the return in a rusticated aedicule. INTERIOR: not inspected. Cast-iron railings to area and piers.
