Single storey bay to left with lean-to roof.

Predominantly small-pane glazing above, plate glass below in timber sash and case windows. Graded grey slates. Rebuilt concrete-faced stacks; decorative octagonal cans.

No 12 York Road (St Andrew's Lodge) and No 5 Boswall Road (Oakleigh) are built to the same design as York Lodge, perhaps by a local builder. St Andrew's Lodge has a later concrete-faced canted bay and a pitched-roofed wooden conservatory; Oakleigh a modern conservatory. The form and survival of the conservatory at 14 York Road are exceptional.
