A traditional 2-storey, 3 bay simple house with good streetscape value. Like other houses in the locality, the entrance elevation is turned away from the street and faces the garden to the rear. The owner is in possession of deeds dating the house to around 1780, it is probable that it was originally a single storey cottage heightened and refashioned at some point in the 19th century.

Near symmetrical (NE) street elevation apart from a dominant 1st floor large corbelled canted oriel window similar to that of nearby 192 Main Street, Murdiston House (see separate listing). The oriel window was constructed possibly at the time the house was enlarged to offer light and views to a 1st floor drawing room. It is interesting to note that the house sits slightly below the present street level.

The SE gable is blank with a driveway leading to the rear of the property, the NW gable is attached to the adjacent 166 and 168 Main Street (currently unlisted, 2004).

The principal entrance elevation set to the rear (SW) elevation is symmetrically disposed. The gabled porch at the ground floor appears on the 1st edition Ordnance Survey map, it has undergone some modernisation. To both the street and garden elevation the windows to the 1st floor are set at eaves.


The interior retains some 19th century features including timber panelled doors, working shutters, cast iron stair balusters and cornice work to some rooms.


Probably random rubble 'pudding stone' with lined cement finish to the street and SE gable creating the effect of squared coursed stone. Painted render to garden elevation. Raised margins to windows and raised margin to E street arris. Predominantly late 20th century replacement multi-paned timber sash and case windows. Pitched grey slate roof with simple timber bargeboard to SE gable. Small rebuilt brick gable apex stack with single can to SE, larger rendered gable apex stack to NW.

Boundary Wall and Gatepiers

The rear garden is bounded by a stone rubble wall with copes set on end to all 3 sides. Square-plan rubble gatepiers set on the angle give access to the rear.
