Walls are of rubble masonry, front face rendered, rear with widely slobbered mortar. Roof of small slates, with stone coping and rendered gable stacks, extended with brick and rendered capping. Windows are slightly recessed sashes; main part with hornless sash windows with glazing bars to upper storey windows, 4-pane sash to ground floor; doorway offset to left (N) with mid-storey window to its right.
