Cottage, possible formerly 3 dwellings. Late C16 or early C17 core. Rough cast
render over timberframe. Welsh slate roof with cresting. Gable on to street.
2 storeys, and now a 3 unit plan, with 1 bay to right of door. The fenestration
is largely C20, with a squared bay window to right and a 5-light slightly
projecting window at left hand end of elevation, with a French window and a
3-light casement to the middle bay. 3 upper casement windows and a dormer with
glazed gablet. Gable end and 1 axial stack, which projects through the slope
of the roof, rather than from the ridge. In the right hand gable wall, part
of the roof truss is visible. Inside, much of the timberwork survives. Beamed
ceilings to ground floor with chamfered spine beam in central bay, and timbered
partition walls. Wall plate and main trusses and partitions visible upstairs.
