Excerpt from East Acton Manor House: Being the Seventh Monograph of the Committee for the Survey of the Memorials of Greater London
The South front possessed a range Of six windows (in three pairs) on the first ﬂoor; but below them, instead of the ordinary frames, there were six pairs Of glazed doors or French windows reaching to the ground. The third window from the cast was supported on either side by brick pilasters with moulded capitals, and along this whole length a verandah had at one time been fixed and subsequently removed. Three dormer windows lighted the attic ﬂoor on this side.
The North front faced the kitchen yard. Its treatment was similar to the south, except that the spacing Of the windows was less regular, and the two lights at the west end were replaced by brick recesses. The ground ﬂoor windows were of the normal type, with basement lights below, and the third Opening from the east end was occupied by a door, flanked by brick pilasters, and having a square fanlight and pedimental hood supported on brackets.
