Textured render on the walls, slate roof with end-chimneys and a plain tile ridge. Projecting roof verge with bargeboards and finial at each gable end. 12-pane windows horned sashes, with label moulds and slate sills. Small porch at the front with slate roof and crested decorative ridge tiles, carved bargeboards and finial, pointed-headed front archway and narrow pointed windows at the sides. Six-panel front door.

Reasons for Listing
