Each property is framed by angle pilasters in middle and upper storeys and articulated by a frieze and deeply moulded cornice forming a sill band to the upper storey. The middle storey windows have moulded architraves with sill band. The upper storey has segmental-headed windows in plain architraves. A moulded eaves cornice comprises brackets alternating with raised quatrefoil panels.
A 3-window range with shop front in the lower storey. The shop front is framed by panelled pilasters incorporating raised diamond panels, and has a replaced wooden fascia with double end brackets and plain cornice. The shop windows are recessed beneath a boarded soffit either side of a central recessed doorway with a half-lit panelled door. On the L side is a large horned sash window of 2 over a single pane. On the R side is a fixed window and a half-lit panelled door. The stall riser is of painted brick. In the elevation above are original 2-light casements beneath fixed overlights in the middle storey and 4-pane sash windows to the upper storey.
Listed as a strongly detailed late C19 commercial terrace, and for its contribution to the historic townscape of Eastgate Street, Bangor Street and Bridge Street, which retains a distinctive late C19 commercial character.
