House in row, set back from adjacent properties and slightly
set down from street level. Early C19 with late C19 extension
and alteration to front. Rendered and colourwashed, double
Roman clay tiled roof with abutment to south, plain gable to

projects slightly. Plain sash windows in plain surrounds,
paired at both levels bays 2 and 4. Entrance in bay 3, with
6-panel door having plain architrave and pediment hood on
console brackets. Flat-roofed dormers with 4-pane casements
over bays 2, 3 and 4. A ridge stack between bays 1 and 2
suggests that this bay was a later addition to the original

The house probably built in isolation just outside the limits
of the town, later enclosed by Victorian development.
