Not my subject at all - I'm just doing it for a friend and am definitely out of my depth with this specialist vocabulary.

moulded (decorated) window ledges with chamfered corners
Explanation:
i.e. instead of being square, the corners of the overhanging bit of the ledge have been cut back.

I'd still love to see a picture of it to be 101% certain.

I'd love to see a picture too: I've seen the castle but as the decoration is all high up, I'm not much the wiser.... Thanks a million,
Jo
