At ground floor, bay contains large, single-pane sash under segmental-arch transom window (both behind metal storms), with elongated wooden brackets at corners supporting small, shingled roof above. At second floor, bay steps back and inwards, now housing two, sash-and-case windows with Edwardian, multiple-pane, upper sashes in segmental arch opening (behind metal storms).
