Outer bays: doors in open porches held on wooden posts to corners, and 4-light windows beneath relieving arches.

The end gables have 3-light windows. Small inserted roof lights flank central gable. Stacks removed. The particular significance of New Earswick lies in its contribution to the development of low cost housing in Britain. Experience gained and practices introduced here were incorporated extensively into the Tudor Walters Report of 1918 which was instrumental in the passing of the Addison Act of 1919. Plans from New Earswick influenced the Government Manual on low cost housing which followed the Act.
