Pair of town houses. Probably early to mid C19; altered.
Slobbered mixed random rubble, hipped slate roof. Unusual plan
centred on a wide through-passage at ground floor in each side
of which each house has its "front" door.
3 storeys and 3 windows, symmetrical, with a wide
semi-elliptical archway in the centre of the ground floor,
with dressed voussoirs and an arch-band, and closed by a
wooden and glazed screen, probably formerly like that at the
rear but now with double-doors flanked by plain-glazed windows
all under an overlight of 4 Tudor-arched lights. Abutting the
jambs of the archway are stone walls approx. 2 metres high
enclosing small service yards. The 1st floor has tall 20-pane
sashed windows, the 2nd floor has shorter 16-pane sashes.
Side-wall chimneys; skylight in centre of roof. In the passage
each house has a C19 6-panel door. The rear end of the passage
has a wooden and glazed screen with small-paned glazing. Rear:
windows replaced with plastic double-glazing.
