Projecting brick bands at 1st and 2nd floors, a plinth, flat rubbed arches and stone cills. Sash windows, some with exposed frames, others in reveals: the 3rd and 4th on the north side (lst floor) are French windows leading on to a stone balcony on 4 brackets and with wrought iron rails. The second bay from each end comprises a stone niche on the 1st and 2nd floors, the lower containing a carved stone female figure and the upper an urn. Seven carved urns surmount the parapet. The central doorway (late C18) is in a fine white stone and has an architrave (surrounding double doors), pilasters and a pediment in a Tuscan order.
