Built in1919, and designed by S Colwyn Foulkes, architect, of Colwyn Bay.
Render over brick with slate gambrel roof with end wall stacks. Two storeyed, but with upper storey almost entirely contained in the roof. Neo-georgian style in its detailing. Central entrance, a panelled door with small-paned side lights and overlight, flanked by tripartite small-paned sash windows. A verandah with ogee leaded roof carried on slender square-section columns (probably cast-iron) spans the frontage. The upper windows are all dormers: the small central 6-pane sash window has swept architrave with pedimented head, and a shallow panelled apron below the eaves. Outer windows are groups of 3 small 6-paned sashes with moulded cornice to flat roofs. All the upper windows have delicate wrought ironwork rails suggestive of scaled-down balconettes.
The house combines economical planning and construction with delicate and precise Neo-georgian detail, and is a remarkable example of a small house design for its date.
