The building was probably erected c1880 as a shop with dwelling over, at the period of the greatest prosperity of Corris as a small town directly assocated with the slate industry.
The building is of coursed slate rubble, with a slate roof. Three storeys and basement, the 2-window frontage to the street of 2 storeys. Tall timber shopfront to the ground floor, the shop section symmetrical with a central part-glazed door and overlight set back from the large plate glass windows, each divided by glazing bars into four. Pilasters at either end carry a narrow entablature and bracketed cornice with a scalloped lead drip. This continues to the right, over a 4-panelled door with an overlight leading to the first floor dwelling. On the first floor, two large 4-pane horned sash windows. Bracketed boxed eaves. The left hand return elevation is set on a splay, with two similar windows to each floor, a central window to the attic, and 2 windows and a door to the basement. Gable stack.
Included as a good and largely complete example of a later C19 village shop, retaining original detail in an ambitiously scaled building at the centre of this large quarry village.
