Four storeys, basement and attic, each house 2-window range with raised quoins, bands above ground, 2nd and 3rd floors, and parapet corbelled on paired plain blocks. Two gabled dormers each. Four-pane sashes to upper floor and inner bay of each house above doors in rusticated surrounds. Two-panel doors with overlights. Outer bays have 2-storey canted oriels with cornices and 2-4-2-pane sashes to first and second floors over ground floor broad tripartite sash. Similar tripartite sash to basement, altered on No 2.
Slate-hung end walls and rear, the slate-hanging renewed in late C20. Rear is slate-hung to upper 3 storeys, with 12-pane sashes to each floor in outer bays, the centre bays with projected section presumably added, to 2nd and 3rd floors. Dormers behind parapet.
