One of pair of formal semi-detached early C19 town houses set back from street behind lawned forecourts.

Forecourts enclosed by dwarf stone walls and railings interrupted by 2 gates in centre and 1 at either end. Railings along street have spear-headed finials and standards with urn finials. Railings of different design bounding paths to houses, added in C20, re-using railings from elsewhere (on right side from Minwear House, Warren St, demolished for Post Office).
Rear slate-hung facades to sea with trellis porches, canted 2-storey outer bays, 6-24-6-pane glazing and hipped roofs. 16-pane sash to upper floor each side.
