House, late C17. Brick on cobbled plinth with remnants of a timber frame. Welsh slate roof. Two storeyed, two unit plan with doorway to left of centre in wide architrave, one 3 light window to its right and the original blocked opening right again, with flat arched brick head. One blocked window to the left and two others of 1 and 3 lights. Wall plate and a raising of the roof visible above. The principle feature of the elevation is the cyma moulded string course which runs across the facade and forms a round arch over the blocked lower opening and continues across the gable wall, where there is another round arch, the 3 light window which it now contains not originally related to it. A further string course forms another arch over the first floor window in the gable wall. To the right of the front elevation, is an additional lower timber framed bay with timbers of slight scantling forming square panels with arch braces. Two new windows, one to each floor.
