Smooth rendered to ground floor and pebbledashed to first floor, rendered quoins to eastern corner.

Appraisal

An appealing house which forms an attractive pair with its neighbour to the west (15321023). It is elegantly proportioned and retains original features such as the slate roof and timber sash windows. The chimneystack running along the ridge is an interesting feature, possibly indicating an earlier date. This building is an important component of the streetscape, occupying a prominent position overlooking the Market Square.
