Terraced three-bay two-storey house with dormer attic, c.1890. Extensively renovated, c.1990, with dormer attic added. One of a terrace of five. Pitched (shared) roof with replacement artificial slate, c.1990, clay ridge tiles, rendered (shared) chimney stacks, replacement square rooflights, c.1990, and cast-iron rainwater goods on rendered eaves. Painted rendered walls. Square-headed window openings with rendered sills, and replacement uPVC casement windows, c.1990. Elliptical-headed door opening approached by six cut-limestone steps with moulded rendered surround, timber panelled door, and overlight. Set back from line of road on an elevated site with landscaped forecourt having painted rendered boundary wall with sections of cast-iron railings over, and cut-red sandstone piers.
A pleasant, well-proportioned modest-scale house, built as one of a terrace of five houses (with 22816135, 200, 202 - 3/WD-26-16-135, 200, 202 - 3), which retains its original form and massing. However, the inappropriate replacement fittings to the window openings do not enhance the external expression of the composition. Set on an elevated site, the house, together with the remainder of the terrace, forms an attractive feature of formal quality in the streetscape.
