3-panel doors with rosettes under small horizontal overlight.
Small plinth, dying to pavement, left; raised alternating
quoins, and raised plain lintel bands at each floor. Right
verge raised and cement rendered, to prominent moulded kneeler
at front; at left end No 105 has been raised on the original
party wall, and a kneeler of the same kind is built in to its
gable wall. Right gable return rendered, with small 4-pane
sash to attic and to first floor. Back has flush quoins, and

surrounding buildings.
