Terraced five-bay two-storey with dormer attic house, built c.1740. Pitched slate roof with yellow brick chimneystacks, replacement uPVC rainwater goods and recent rooflights. Roughly dressed rubble stone walls having lime mortar pointing. Square-headed window openings having red brick voussoirs, tooled limestone sills and six-over-six pane timber sliding sash windows.

Appraisal

This large scale building presents a wide and well balanced facade, with its fine limestone doorcase providing an attractive focal point. Its steeply pitched roof is a particularly notable feature, which indicates its eighteenth century construction date, and is also interesting for its unusual number of chimneystacks.
