House, early C19 of red brick in Flemish bond, forecourt with stone retaining wall to front. Roof concealed behind stone capped parapet with simple iron railings above. Canted 2-storey bay with hornless sash windows, 8-over-8 pane to centre, flanked by 4-over-4 pane side lights. (This canted bay is depicted on the 1852 1:1056 Ordnance Survey town plan). Door to right has a rectangular overlight with a wedge lintel and appears to open onto a through passage. Window above is blind and also has a wedge lintel.

No.4 Cliff Street is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
