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

Round-headed doorways in inner bays treated as a single unit with delicate timber trellis double porch; doorways with fluted pilasters, radiating fanlights and doors with raised and fielded panels, and corresponding panels in the reveals.
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. Centre has doors in renewed trellis porches, paired round-headed first floor windows and large overhanging earlier C20 addition on 3rd floor with 4 windows and hipped slate roof. 2 dormers behind parapet.
Graded II* as a particularly well-detailed pair of Georgian houses with unusual iron trellis porches.
