Flat-roofed open porch on carved consoles, left; gabled half-timbered porch on shaped brackets, right; sandstone doorsteps. Queen Anne timber casements of 3 lights with leaded glazing stand proud of wall face on shaped wooden brackets. Shaped framed and boarded doors, part glazed with 4 small panes. The simple back suggests an older building reworked by Douglas and Fordham. Interior: Not inspected. A good composition of the Vernacular Revival.
