Square-headed tripartite opening to first floor comprising six-over-six and flanking two-over-two timber sliding sash windows. Rendered sills throughout. Shopfront having paired pilasters comprising inner render pilasters flanked by outer timber versions, moulded and carved capitals supporting render architrave with guttae, fascia board and cornice.

Built as one of a terrace, the form and proportions of this building contribute to the coherence and character of the streetscape. The well-crafted shopfront is a noteworthy feature which greatly enlivens the façade at ground level. The elevation is greatly enhanced by the retention and variety of timber sliding sash windows.
