Hipped slate roof with catslide to rear extension, red clay roll ridge tiles, rectangular yellow brick chimneystacks with cogging to cap, deeply projecting timber eaves, replacement and cast-iron rainwater goods. Pebbledash rendered walls. Square-headed window openings, with six-over-six, four-over-four and two-over-two with round-headed tracery timber sashes, rendered reveals, painted stone sills. Three-centre-headed entrance door opening, with Doric doorcase and fanlight, timber bolection moulded flat panel door. House set back from road, with outbuilding to rear. Cast-iron double entrance gates with decorative spear finials on rectangular pebbledash rendered piers with ashlar stone diamond-headed cap flanked by curvilinear pebbledash rendered boundary walls with splayed cement rendered coping.

Appraisal

A handsome former manse which has retained its architectural proportions and fine detailing, typical of its mid-nineteenth century date. The unusual tracery to the ground floor windows and the Doric doorcase are details of particular note and quality.
