House and flats: the building is of several periods with a late C17 core, with early C19 and C20 additions. Brick and tile. The central part of the north west elevation is a symmetrical unit of the late C17, of 2 storeys (now with dormers), 3 windows: hipped roof (east side) and modillion eaves cornice, 2 C20 dormers: red brick walls in Flemish bond with blue headers, rubbed flat arches (wider than the present openings), and pilasters, moulded 1st floor band, plinth. Old sash above the doorway, other sashes (early C19, one new) of 30 small panes of old glass. C20 classical doorcase. To the east is a lower C20 plain extension of 2 storeys windows, with Flemish bond walls and casements; to the west is the tall gable of the front unit. The early C19 front (south-west) elevation is symmetrical, of 3 storeys (2nd floor of 1845) 5 windows. Plain tile roof with thin moulded eaves cornice with carved dentils: walls of red brickwork in Flemish bond, rubbed flat arches, stone cills, plinth, and 2nd floor wood band (concealing earlier wall plate). Old sashes. Greek Doric stone porch of 2 columns, 2 pilasters, plain fanlight and ¾ glazed double doors. Within the angle formed by the 2 front elevations there are rear extensions, of the late C17, but heightened in the early C19, with a late C19 2 storeyed wing attached by a single-storeyed service block (these irregular units have been converted to flats). Within the front entrance is a staircase of the early C19, and one room is panelled.
