In the upper storeys, the elevation is in 2 bays. The middle storey has tripartite windows in eared architraves, the upper storey similar windows under elliptical heads with linked hood moulds. Two gabled dormers have round-headed windows with hood moulds and prominent keystones. The main entrance is in a splayed angle on the R side facing Market Street. The doorway is round-headed with fluted and panelled pilasters and a keyed arch. The glazed panel door has glazed panel surround and overlight. The middle, upper and dormer windows are similar to the Market Street elevation.
The longer elevation facing Church Street has windows with details similar to the Market Street elevation, and grouped 5 2 2 in the middle and upper storeys. In the lower storey, from the L end, are 4 windows then a recessed doorway with replaced door (tripartite windows are in the middle and upper storeys above the doorway). Further R in the lower storey are 2 groups of narrow triple windows, and at the R end are double panelled doors under a plain overlight.
Listed for group value with Market Chambers, Old Market Hall and 4-10 Church Street. Historically interesting as showing the industrial and commercial prosperity of Pontypridd at the turn of C20.
