Pitched slate roof with terracotta finial and decorative timber bargeboards to entrance bay. Lined-and-ruled rendered walls with render quoins. Square-headed window openings with moulded render surrounds and timber sliding sash windows with one-over-one panes. Square-headed door opening, with carved timber surround and timber panelled door with overlight, and granite steps. Lined-and-ruled rendered boundary wall with dressed granite copings and cast-iron railings. Shopfront extension has flat roof, render cornice, rendered walls, and modern timber shopfront with glazed door.

A handsome domestic property in a primarily commercial area, notwithstanding the later shop addition. The ridge crestings, carved bargeboards and finial add interest to the roofline, while the applied render details enhance its formal properties.
