The adjacent property was that of Mr W. Firth.
The asymmetrical elevation has two Flemish style gables, from the larger of which a two-storey segmental bay projects. Thos lights the drawing room and the master bedroom, with its interconnecting dressing room above. Above the side entrance, a tall window lights the hall and staircase.The retaining walls and gate piers are part of the grand designs of these park properties. Subsequent alterations have led to the loss of the smaller Femish gable. Ben Stocks and John Kirk & Sons wee responsibel for many of the new houoses on Park Drive.
