Squared rubble limestone walls with brick quoins and dressings to all openings. Square-headed window openings with painted stone sills and replacement uPVC frames.

This house stands at the north end of a row of workers' houses, now in general residential use. The design, materials and detailing of this house are of good quality and reflect the aspirations and status of the estate that financed and instigated the buildings. The row contributes considerable interest and charm to this streetscape, and contrasts with different forms of the other group of almshouses on the Dublin Road.
