The long west service wing is lower, of three storeys on a lower ground level, and ends in a taller unit; all of plain but similar treatment. The north-east shows as a continuous range spearated by only slight projections, of 1, 2, 3 storeys, 3:2.1.2: 5.0.1.0 windows. Plain walls with plinth, cornice to low parapet, sashes in reveals; the western block has a triple sash to the 1st floor (beneath a pediment) above a cambered (lower) ground-floor triple sash.
