Shopfront comprising fluted pilasters with shamrock motif to capitals, supporting timber fascia with raised lettering and cornice over.

A wide fronted house that is a strong historic addition to the village streetscape. The house demonstrates the classic form of the traditional combined residential and commercial building type, once typical of towns and village, but now sadly increasingly rare. The fine shopfront, integral carriage arch with built-in wicket door, and timber sliding sash windows are notable features. The well-maintained interior is important, as its survival is particularly unusual.
