House. 1875, possibly an extension of an earlier structure; external embellishments of early C20. Stucco. Parapeted roof. EXTERIOR: 3 storeys and attic over basement. 5-window range; 2-window range return. The main elevation is symmetrically disposed about a round-arched entrance with fanlight, which is reached by a short flight of steps. This entrance is topped by a broken segmental pediment supported by a pair of console brackets; the tympanum of pediment finishes in a scrolled finial. A pair of round-arched windows to either side of the entrance, the architraves with fluted keystone extends below sill to enclose a spandrel panel which is decorated with volutes and swags. The ornamental treatment of the ground floor dates to the C20, and in a late C18 French style. The surface of the ground floor, including that of the slightly projecting aedicule, is treated as banded rustication, a feature which could date either to the 1875 or the early C20 extension. There are storey bands between all floors. All upper-floor windows are flat arched; the first-floor windows are floor-to-ceiling with eared architraves; each second-floor window is topped by a cornice supported by a pair of console brackets. Entablature with projecting cornice sits below a balustraded parapet. On the ground floor of the return is one round-arched window similar to those already described, the rest are flat arched, each of those on the first and second floors have a cornice. There is a round-arched entrance set to the rear of the return in a rusticated aedicule. INTERIOR: not inspected. Cast-iron railings to area and piers.
