Heavily modernised to the interior and rear, the house is listed in recognition that its principal elevation is largely unaltered with 18th century fabric resembling that of the adjacent No 24, see separate listing. Standing prominently to the centre of the S range of the S side of Ancaster Square, the house contributes to the group value of the square. The square was designed to be the centre-piece of the planned town of Callander in the later 18th century and still remains as its focal point (2004).
The principal (NE) elevation faces across the square, the main door is centrally located. There is an inserted bi-partite window to the left, 3 evenly placed windows are set to the 1st floor close to eaves. The SE gable is attached to 28 Ancaster Square, the NW gable to 24 Ancaster Square.
The rear SW elevation is heavily modernised.
