Shop with house above built circa 1890 probably by EH Back. Mixed construction; solid side and back walls and timber-framed show front over ground-floor level of painted red brick with Bathstone ashlar dressings; right lateral stack with rendered red brick chimneyshaft; gabled slate roof with pierced crested ridge tiles. Plan: Double-depth, one room wide with entrance lobby and stairs to left. Exterior: 4 storeys; 2-window second-floor range. Ornamental show front in a distinctive Elizabethan style. Timber framed with jettied floors, projecting bays, balustraded balconies. Stone doorway to ground-floor left has a moulded surround, 20th century glazed door and overlight. Central stone 3-light mullion-and-transom window and, to right, a smaller segmental arch-headed and transomed window. First floor has large central segmental arch-headed opening, second floor has 2 French windows and 2 casements to the third floor. All windows now contain late 20th century aluminium frames. First and second-floor full width balconies. Framing creates narrow panels which were probably originally slate-hung like the other contemporary houses on the street. Top-storey framing has braces and other ornament, including a brattished tie beam (similar decoration to the gable bargeboards). Interior not inspected. Included for group value.
