Pitched slate roof with rendered chimneystacks and brick cornice. Painted rendered walls to ground floor, west gable and porch. Slate-hung walls to upper floors with decorative diamond details, one with lettering 'John Christian Fecit'. Square-headed openings with limestone sills and replacement timber windows. Pointed-arch openings to porch with concrete sills and fixed traceried timber windows with arched timber surrounds having pilasters, imposts and keystones. Square-headed door opening to porch with replacement timber door, limestone steps and with cast-iron railings on limestone plinths to front of site.
This house forms a pair with the adjoining house to the east. It retains its original form, as well as its very interesting slate-hung front elevation with its diamond pattern detailing in the slate-work. Its form is enhanced by the retention of the cast-iron railings to the street front.
