Terraced four-bay two-storey double pile house, c. 1755, with entrance up a flight of four limestone steps. Double pitched roofs, with mono pitch slate hung pair of dormers. Ashlar limestone façade. Plain rendered plat band to eaves. Limestone street name plaque to front elevation. Square headed openings to windows, round headed to entrance door, all having rubbed brick arches with limestone keystones. Windows having cills. Timber sliding sash six over six pane windows. Timber panelled entrance door with simple spoke fanlight. Street frontage. Long garden to rear.


Important mid-eighteenth century building, lent further significance by its proximity to Saint Finbar's Cathedral. Retaining its original scale and form despite the replacement of some characteristic elements such as the entrance door. Distinctive due to its ashlar limestone façade and visual connection with the adjoining building in the terrace.
