One of a pair of C18 houses with possible earlier origins. The upper storey was added in the late C18.


A Georgian 3-storey 2-window house, one of a near reflected pair, with pebble-dashed front, slate roof with skylight to the R and pebble-dashed stack to the L. On the R side is a replacement half-glazed door under a bracketed gabled canopy. All windows are lately renewed in earlier openings. To the L of the entrance is a small-pane fixed window. Above are 4-pane horned sash windows, of which the upper-storey window is centrally placed beneath a gable with barge boards.

In the L gable end is a small window on the L side of the middle storey. The rear has a 2-storey added gabled wing to the L side, added conservatory on the R side, replacement window upper L and 2 added skylights.


Originally a double-depth plan. The ground-floor front room retains a fireplace with large stone lintel.
