Built in the 3rd quarter of the C19 and shown on the 1871 Tremadog estate plan and 1888 Ordnance Survey. In 1886 it was occupied by John Jones, 'house furnisher and general dealer'.

In the lower storey the house entrance on the R has a recessed half-glazed door (partly boarded over) under a round-headed overlight. The shop has windows of 2 round-headed lights defined by thin mahogany glazing bars, flanking a recessed central glazed door and overlight. The shop and house entrance are both framed by plain pilasters and a deep fascia, with a later fascia superimposed, and awning over the shop.
