Shaped kneeler to right hand raised gable, brick end stack to right. Forecourt has stone retaining wall.

External inspection of front elevation only (interiors not inspected).

No.5 Cliff Street is designated at Grade II for the following principal reasons:
* Date: the building is of late C18 date.
* Craftsmanship: illustrated by the use of Flemish bond for the brickwork.
* Form: as a relatively rare survival of a narrow frontage townhouse.
* Group Value: the building has group value with the other listed properties on Cliff Street.
