Mid C18 in origin and said to be in existence by 1754, but largely altered in the early C19. Probably built together with Nos. 5 & 7B, and has similar features. Nos 7A and 7B were probably one house but the degree of alteration when divided is difficult to assess. They are still in one ownership and are interconnected on the ground floor, but they are now accessed separately. Apparently externally unaltered since the early C19.
Brick, now colourwashed, with bands at first and second floor levels, quoin pilaster to right, Welsh slate roof. Double depth plan with entry on the right. Three storeys, two windows. Segmental headed door on right with 4 pane transom-light and flush-panelled door. The windows have segmental arched heads and 6 over 6-pane sashes. The second floor windows are smaller, only 3 over 6 panes. Cornice, parapet, plain roof, gable stack.
Rear elevation not inspected.
The interior has been altered in the C20 but it retains an apparently late C16 fireplace on the ground floor. This has rebuilt jambs and a massive stone lintel, but it stands in the corridor and is presumably a relic of the previous house on the site.
Included for its special interest as a well preserved late C18 and early C19 house retaining good character, which is a part of the most complete street of historic architecture in Abergavenny.
