House with 2 shops. Early C18; shops late C19. Painted incised stucco with
painted ashlar dressings and quoins; pantiled roof with stone gable and parapet
coping, stone ridge tiles and old brick chimneys. 3 storeys, 3 bays, the left
wider. Flat stone lintel over renewed door and overlight at left of second
bay; step up to central half-glazed door in shop in right half of house with
pilasters framing projecting square 2-light bays with round-cornered lights;
renewed fascia board. Projecting wide shop window in first bay has slender
pilasters and top cornice. Sashes with glazing bars in corniced canted bay
window in first bay of first floor; plain stone surrounds to sashes in other
bays, those on second floor square; glazing bars except for late C19 sashes in
third bay. Steeply-pitched roof has small square banded left end chimney, and
corniced chimneys at right of first bay and at right end. Rear stair wing
shows broad glazing bars and bullion glass in return on upper flight.
Interior-shows Teesdale 'marble' plain corniced chimney piece with cast iron
fire surround in rococo style, and Regency fluted inner panels, in principal
first-floor room; open well stair with boxed-in balustrade; rear and left side
doors at end of central passage have patterned fanlights. Partition wall
between this and No. 4 at left is very thin, suggesting that at least the Left
bay was formerly part of the adjoining house. Second floor may be an addition,
but stucco obscures detail.
