Round-headed entrance door opening, painted smooth rendered bull-nosed reveal, moulded entablature on engaged Doric columns flanking painted timber door with six bolection-moulded panels, petal fanlight, concrete approach steps, cast- and wrought-iron balustrades; elliptical-headed carriage arch, painted smooth rendered bull-nosed reveal, blind painted timber sunburst overpanel, decorative moulded frieze, painted timber vertically-sheeted gates incorporating wicket.

This fine house is part of a superb terrace which appears much earlier than its mid-nineteenth century date would suggest. Retention of original elements such as the balconnettes, fanlight and coach arch, contribute to its substantial architectural and historic value. The terrace is of special interest for being entirely symmetrical about a central axis with a three-two-three-two-three rhythm with subtle variations, all of which respect the overall composition.
