In an Arts and Crafts style and as subtly asymmetrical as it is interesting. Brick and stone.

Ground floor rectangular in plan with 2 arched windows on the left, the entrance up steps within an arched porch and 3 narrow flat-headed sash windows on the right. Above the rectangular ground floor 2 canted bay windows rise through first and second floors divided by french windows above the entrance that give on to the balconies formed by a balustraded arcade at first floor level and by a range of Tuscan columns at second floor level. The fenestration of the 2 bay windows completely different and the left-hand one at first floor level even seems to indicate 2 floors. In the gable a tripartite window beneath a semi-circular pediment; either side of the gable a pedimented dormer window. Nothing inside. One of an important group of houses.
