Front elevation of unpainted stucco, 2-storey and cellar, 3-window range, upper floor with 4-pane sashes and ground floor with canted 2-4-2 bay window with pilasters and modillion eaves cornice on large brackets, either side of central doorway. Flight of 5 slate steps up to doorway with stuccoed surround, plain cornice on consoles, and C20 glazed door with plain overlight. Cellar window beneath right bay window.
Rear range has first floor of painted brick with 3 horned 12-pane sashes and close-eaved roof, ground floor obscured by added garage.
