There is a central doorway that has a rusticated surround with projecting imposts and a keystone. It has a 20th century door and fanlight. The doorway is flanked on each side by glazing bar sashes with projecting keystones. There are similar windows to the outer bays. The stone framing around the doorway is carried up as a feature around the first floor glazing bar sash window to a flat cornice on brackets. Beneath the window is a balustrade and lugged architrave around it. In the pediment, there is a Dioclecian window with a stone surround. The east elevation is of three bays.
