(Formerly listed as:

The ground floor plan is irregular. Externally on the ground floor there is a C19 three-light casement in left-hand bay with post serving as mullion, with door to right; there is a barred window in the second bay; the right-hand bays have red wall tiles with C20 shop door to left and window to right. There are barred casements to the first floor, those in bays two and four semi-dormers.
