Predominantly 12-pane timber sash and case windows. Grey slate roof, with lead ridge. Cast-iron rainwater goods. Rendered gablehead stack; coped, with circular cans. Coped skews.
Simply detailed, contributing to the streetscape. The reinstatement of the missing gablehead stack would restore the classical profile of the building.
