Exterior: two storeys. Asymmetrical 2:2-window front. No.43 has a six-panel front door, the upper panels glazed, the lower fielded. Pilastered doorcase with fielded panelled reveals. left-hand windows are 16-pane hornless sashes, 12-pane sash over front door. No.41 (to the right) has a plainer doorway with recessed six-panel front door with fielded panels and reveals. No.41 has two ground and two first floor boxed 16-pane sash windows.

The reported cob construction is unusual for Tiverton.
