House. Late C18 or early C19 with later alterations. Ashlar with
moulded window surrounds and raised quoins; tiled roof on raised eaves
band; verge parapets; end stacks. 3-storey, 3-window front; glazing
bar sashes, lower to top floor, moulded surrounds and raised keystones
to first floor with large central Serlian window (no window on top floor
above); pedimented surround to ground-floor right-hand window including
a miniature dentil course; 3-sided flat-roofed bay window to left;
central entrance has pilastered surround and pediment on pulvinated
