Centres of front (inward-facing) and side elevations break forward slightly with pediments; plain side and angle pilasters support entablature with plain frieze and cornice; centre of each front emphasised as a shallow portico with distyle Ionic columns. Windows, 2 in front, one each side, are blank with glazing missing, cambered heads, cambered head recesses. Door opening to centre of each portico in moulded architrave, doors missing. Between the lodges a pair of square ashlar panelled gate piers with moulded cornices and square die-shaped caps; double ornamental cast-iron central gates and similar pedestrian gates.
