Exterior: four storeys at the front, three to the rear. Narrow one-bay front to Fore Street with left and right pilasters with sunk panels decorated with roundels. Platband at second-floor level. Deep projecting cornice above band at third-floor level suggests that the third floor, which has a cornice and parapet, is an addition. Late 20th century commercial shop front. First and second-floor windows have moulded eared shouldered architraves and are glazed with 16-pane probably early 19th century hornless sashes with old glass.

Door to No.15a has a 19th century pilaster doorcase with a cornice and a recessed six-panel door, the upper panels fielded, the lower flush, the upper half of the door has been renewed.
