House. Probably re-cased late in C18; the earlier building may be C17, judging from east wall. Three storeyed stuccoed rubble on an ashlar base with cellars. The dressings are also of ashlar. As a centre-piece in the ground and first floors is a front doorway in stucco with coved imposts and a semi-circular arch, over which is a moulded stone bracketed hood. Above this is a slightly projection projecting stone moulded frame to a sash window with a pediment and scrolled consoles to the architrave. There is plain coping at the top of the parapet. Modern brick stacks. Five sash windows with glazing bars in stone frames, architraves and cills. For drawing made in 1822 by J C Buckler showing the then exterior, see Bodl M S Don a. 3 II. 3l.

All the listed buildings on the north side form a group.
