Two segmental headed dormers with 6-pane lights, sash windows to upper 2 floors in moulded round heads with fluted keystones and pronounced abacu. Four half fluted Doric pilasters articulate the principal 2 storeys and support a triglyph frieze and plain parapet. The ground floor has 4 arched openings set in heavy rustication and a bracketted string course from which the pilasters rise. Six-panel C19 door to right-hand opening, glazed C20 door to 3rd bay fron the right flanked by late C19 Regency style window surrounds with reeded jambs and brackets. Inside features survive which suggest that the build- ing was a major town house of the borough. These include 2 rooms with C18 decorative schemes. The NW room on the first floor has an ogee bracket and dentil cornice, 2 early C18 inches set in bolection moulded panelling and raised fielded panelling in the window reveals. A connecting room has a similar cornice with paterae, a stucco overmantel of swaggs set in an eggand tongue surround and a central leaf-entwined rose. Countemporary doors with raised fielded panels. The Chemist's is the most outstanding example of the borough's local Baroque style inspired by the proximity of Vanbrugh's Blenheim Palace.
