Early 19th century. 2-storey, 3-bay symmetrical house of rectangular plan. Harl-pointed stugged sandstone walls. Projecting cills at windows. Modern glazed timber porch with cement-rendered base at ground in centre bay, regular fenestration in flanking bays and at 1st floor. Blank S gable with modern garage at ground. Modern lean-to porch at rear elevation, bipartite window centred at 1st floor.
Timber sash and case windows, 12-pane to principal elevation, 4-pane to rear. Purple-grey slate roof; coped apex stacks with circular cans, cement-rendered skew copes.
BOUNDARY WALLS: cement-rendered dwarf wall to Burgh Road, coped with decorative cast-iron railings; central gate comprising cement-rendered gatepiers with bases, semicircular caps and matching cast-iron gate. Random rubble boundary wall with concrete cope to S.
A photograph of circa 1970 shows a flat-roofed, corniced and margined porch centred at ground floor of the principal front, with the entrance door in the side and a 15-pane border-glazed window to the W face. The loss of the porch is unfortunate, but this remains a good quality building from this period with the majority of its external details surviving.
