Brick stacks at gable ends of upper section, and axially within lower range. Upper section is a 2-unit range (now comprising two dwellings, but probably once one). Doorways at each end, that to left (in front of gable end stack) in fine timber porch: this has segmentally arched entrance with snakes carved in spandrels, flanked by tripartite pilasters with religious symbols in relief in recessed panels. Flat balustrading (probably renewed) in return walls, above roughcast lower walls. gabled slate roof. Single light window above porch, then paired lights with high transoms to right on each floor. Upper doorway beneath small gabled porch canopy, with 3-light transomed window to its left, and similar 2-light window above. Lower section is a long 2-unit range, with single unit cottage to left of through-way to rear. This has entrance to left with gabled porch canopy, and 2-light windows with high transoms on each floor to its right. Similar window beyond the through-way, with another not aligned above it.
