There is a central door and hopper light flanked by sidelights and polygonal bay windows. The bay windows feature double hung sash windows. Each bay window extends above the verandah and features a hipped roof. The roofscape features tall render capped chimneys. There is a broad set of steps leading from the verandah to the garden.
