Probably built in the first half of the C19, and shown on the 1889 Ordnance Survey.
A late Georgian style former house of 2 storeys and attic. It has a 3-bay main range and an additional lower 2-storey bay set back on the L side. Walls are pebble-dashed with smooth-rendered sill bands and moulded cornice over the lower storey, and a slate roof with brick stacks to the sides.
The symmetrical main range has gabled bays with plain barge boards and pendant finials, narrower to the centre. The central porch has a moulded cornice and plain parapet. The original round-headed entrance has a moulded arch on simple pilasters, and retains its original radial-glazed overlight, but otherwise has been infilled with small-pane glazing. The entrance is now in the R side wall, which has a glazed door in a plain architrave. The L side has a narrow small-pane round-headed window. The entrance is flanked by renewed tripartite 4-pane sash windows in moulded architraves (replacements, since an early C20 photograph shows a lean-to conservatory flanking the porch). The upper storey has 12-pane hornless sash windows in moulded architraves. The attic has plainer windows, 9-pane sashes to the outer bays and 6-pane in the centre.
The set-back L-hand gabled bay has a tripartite 12-pane sash window, to the R of which is a replacement fielded-panel door and overlight, all in a moulded architrave. Above is a similar architrave to a 12-pane hornless sash window. An angle pilaster to the L is smooth-rendered.
The R end wall has a replacement small-pane window in a plain broad architrave. The rear also has gabled bays. The outer bays of the main range have 12-pane sash windows in lower and upper storeys, and 9-pane sashes to the attic, all renewed and the lower L-hand window in a plain architrave. In the centre is an added gabled projection with pairs of 2-pane sash windows, and a further flat-roof extension on its L side. The lower bay at the R-hand end has an added 2-storey projection with tripartite 4-pane sash windows in each storey.
The building retains a double-depth plan organised around the central hall. Inside the porch is an elliptical radial-glazed fanlight leading to the entrance hall, and round arch leading to the rear stairs. The open-well stairs has turned balusters.
Listed for its special architectural interest as an early C19 former house retaining definite character, and for its group value within the historical townscape.
