Square-headed window openings with painted limestone sills and raised render reveals to front elevation. Timber sliding sash windows, one-over-one pane to front and six-over-six pane to rear, latter with painted cast-iron window-guards. Round-headed door opening to front flanked by engaged Tuscan columns with plinths and capitals and supproted moulded archivolt.

Garden to front enclosed by tooled limestone plinth wall supporting decorative cast-iron railings and gate with fleur-de-lys detail.
Set in a terrace of four houses, this mid-nineteenth-century house presents a classical proportioned front elevation enlivened by a simple but attractive moulded doorcase. It is enhanced by the retention of timber sash windows. Built to the same design as that of its neighbour to the east, it helps bring a visual and architectural unity to the terrace. The well-executed cast-iron gate and railings at the boundary wall are also of note.
