Large scale, two-storey, three-window range of 12-pane hornless sashes and centre boarded door with lozenge-tracery overlight. Openings have long slab lintels and stone sills. Two basement windows, four steps up to front door. Left end wall is partly slate-hung, with C20 lean-to. Door in right end wall.
