History

Exterior

Three-storey late Regency former town house. Of uncoursed, squared stone blocks, the ground floor roughcast; renewed slate roof and end chimneys with plain cornicing. The facade is symmetrical and has a central entrance with half-glazed door and plain rectangular fanlight; open porch on Tuscan columns with simply-moulded entablature. Flanking this Victorian canted wooden bay window with moulded cornices and 4-pane casements to L with modern bay to R. The first floor has two large windows with 4-pane casements effectively serving as French windows; these open onto a balcony with cast-iron brackets and decorative ironwork. Plain 2-pane casements to the second floor. Low slatestone forecourt walls to the front, with surmounting spear-headed railings. The rear elevation has 16-pane sashes to the upper floors, and a tall arched stair window with marginal glazing.

Interior

The interior was not inspected at the time of survey.
