A pebble-dashed front with an added scribed roughcast porch. Windows are replaced in original openings with C20 architraves with sill bands. The doorway lower L is within an added gabled porch and retains its original radial-glazed overlight. The R gable end is scribed roughcast. The rear roof slope has an added skylight.
27-28 Segontium Terrace are listed with 20-26 Segontium Terrace as an addition to an ambitious urban development in Caernarfon consequent upon the growing importance of its port. The houses are prominently sited above Slate Quay and contribute to the strong Georgian tradition in Caernarfon. No 28 is listed notwithstanding loss of original detail.
