Pitched roof with replacement artificial slate, clay ridge tiles, rooflights (one replacement), and replacement uPVC rainwater goods on rendered eaves. Painted rendered, ruled and lined walls. Square-headed window openings with cut-stone sills, and one-over-one timber sash windows. Square-headed door opening with cut-stone step on limestone-flagged threshold, and timber door having overlight. Square-headed openings to ground floor remodelled, c.1900, with bas-relief pilasters having cut-limestone padstones on cut-limestone plinth, window opening now boarded-up, and timber double doors having overlight.

An appealing house of modest architectural aspirations contributing positively to the visual appeal of the streetscape. Notwithstanding a number of renovation works at either end of the twentieth century some of the historic fabric survives intact, thereby enhancing the character of the site in Saint Kieran's Street.
