End-of-terrace two-bay three-storey house, built c.1870, with shopfront inserted to front (east) elevation. Built as one of a pair with adjoining building to south. Pitched slate roof with rendered chimneystack and cast-iron gutters on moulded eaves course. Smooth rendered walls with moulded render continuous corniced sill courses. Square-headed window openings having chamfered reveals and two-over-two timber sash windows. Timber shopfront comprising pilasters supporting fascia board with scroll brackets and moulded cornice. Square-headed window opening with timber fixed pane round-headed display window over rendered stallriser. Square-headed door opening with plain glazed overlight and replacement timber double leaf doors. Street-fronted.
Although now disused, this is a fine example of the characteristic urban house with shopfront inserted at a later date. The uniform proportions on each floor and muted Classical detailing is typical of its time. It presents an early aspect with the elementary composition surviving in place together with historic fabric, including fenestration and traditional shopfront.
