2-storey villa said to date from 1836, but perhaps built in two main stages; later alterations, in 1900s: eg, turret in angle of L-plan north (entrance) front raised as a 3-storey ?campanile? and decorative timber porch built alongside. Rubble-built, ashlar detailing mostly painted; bracketted eaves, slate roofs with red ridging tiles, end stacks; south (rear) elevation is plainer, altered and harled. Original glazing mostly gone, unsympathetic replacements. Ground floor windows flat-lintelled, round-arched above except on 2-bay east (garden) front which has projecting ground floor window-bays (also 1900s) lighting twinned public rooms (each having decorative chimney-piece and ornamental timber and plasterwork) windows above (originally with unusual margined glazing pattern) cut through eaves, with barge-boarded gables. Unusually decorative interior with extensive timber work; entrance hall (probably 1900s in present form) with aedicule-framed chimney-piece, staircase (said to be re-aligned), wall-panelling; also leaded glasswork. Boundary wall to street, gateway re-positioned when associated garden area to east was reduced in size.
Originally Fountain Cottage; re-named c 1885.
