Doorcase to the left has pilasters and entablature to a six-panel door. The left return in Queen Street has an early 19th century doorcase with fluted pilasters and entablature over a late 19th century six-panel door with an early 19th century 3/6-pane sash window to the left. Other windows are various mid and late 19th century. Interior: not inspected but noted as having a large shell alcove, probably late 19th century.
