This is The Oxley in Ward Avenue.
Most of the decoration on the facade comes from the arrangement of standard dark coloured bricks as can be seen above the windows on the squared-off corner and the stepped window boxes on the four upper floor windows on the front.
Colour is introduced around the front entrance, albeit in the form of black and white Art Deco patterning in the tiles and paintwork.
It is almost as if the doorway belongs to another building altogether.
