The first storey has two pairs of gigantic Corinthian pilasters flanking the doorway and supporting the blank entablature. Another pair of pilasters occupy the outer corners. The second storey has two pairs of pilasters of the same style as those of the storey below, except the capitals are Composite not Corinthian. The crowning triangular pediment contains a simple coat of arms, and this storey is flanked by a pair of gigantic volutes.
