Small 18th century with late 20th century alterations and additions. 2-storey, 3-bay square-plan house with rear addition creating L-plan. Rendered, plain surrounds to openings.

NE ELEVATION: attached to 59 High Street.
SE ELEVATION: modern 2-storey gabled wing with single storey lean-to outshot. Modern fenestration.

Modern timber boarded door, modern 12-pane timber sash and case windows. Pitched roof, grey slate eaves easing course, modern red interlocking tiles. Remnants of original raised coped skew to SW. Replacement raised coped skew to NE. Replacement coped gable apex stack with circular cans to SW.
NOTES: The house was extensively renovated in the late 20th century however it does still retain some original features including the remnants of the SW skew. The pitch of the skew suggests that the roof was steeper than it is today indicating that the house could have been thatched. It is not likely that the date stone above the central door is original to the house, it is said to have come from another building and was placed above the door at the time of renovation.
