  • Double-depth plan. 3 storey, 3-window range. 6-panel door to centre with probably early C18 fanlight and arched surround flanked by Doric wood half-columns supporting a triangular dentilled pediment with pulvinated frieze.
  • Paired 8-pane sashes with segmental brick heads to left and right.¬† Flat brick band between ground and first floor.

Don’t think the elephants are listed, and hope you can all recognise a triangular dentilled pediment with pulvinated frieze.
