House, formerly shop, now cafe. Circa 1820 or earlier. Smooth plastered mass wall construction; roof at front concealed behind parapet but judging from the rear the house is roofed end on to the road - roof to rear slated and hipped to end. Two right stacks with brick shaft with band; left end stack (towards rear) with an old brick shaft and bands. Two rooms deep, one room wide.
Exterior: three storeys. Symmetrical two-bay front with rusticated pilasters, plain coped parapet ramps down to centre. Ground floor has remnants of a circa1830s shop front in the form of two fluted Greek Doric columns at either end, now supporting a large, plain projecting fascia. In the centre of the shop front a probably early 20th century bay window of three lights is high-transomed with small panes above the transom. Doorways to left and right. The left-hand doorway is round-headed with a glazed door with a low panel; the right-hand doorway is similar with a glazed door with a low panel but with a plain fanlight. The first floor has probably late 19th century four-pane sashes with segmental heads. The second-floor windows are circa1830s 12-pane sashes. The rear elevation is less altered. It is cement rendered with a hipped roof. Twentieth century half-glazed rear door to left with glazed side panel and three-pane overlight. The two windows of the left-hand bay are 12-pane early 19th century sashes, the first-floor window altered to one pane in the top light. The three windows in the right-hand bay are early 19th century 16-pane sashes the ground-floor window altered with one pane only in the top light.
Interior partially inspected. Ground floor altered for commercial use. On the ground floor; stair cell between front and rear rooms with stair rising axially.
