Pitched (shared) slate roof (continuing into lean-to to return) with clay ridge tiles, red brick Running bond chimney stacks, and iron rainwater goods on rendered eaves having red brick corbels. Unpainted rendered, ruled and lined walls with shared cut-limestone date stone/plaque having red brick surround. Square-headed window openings with cut-stone sills, red brick block-and-start surrounds, and replacement uPVC casement windows. Square-headed door opening with cut-limestone step, red brick block-and-start surround, and replacement timber panelled door having overlight. Road fronted with concrete footpath to front.

Appraisal

An appealing modest-scale house built as one of a pair (with 12000212/KK-4766-09-212) representing a small-scale late nineteenth-century local authority-sponsored housing project in the locality. Enlivened by the red brick dressings enhancing the architectural design quality of the composition by introducing an element of polychromy to the site the external expression of the house has not benefited from the inappropriate replacement fittings inserted to the window openings.
