A symmetrical 2-storey 3-windowed villa with a central flat-roofed 4-pane sash dormer above 4-pane sashes in flush boxes; these may formerly have contained 16-pane sashes. The narrow panelled door with transom has a fanlight. There are brick stacks to each gable end. To the left is a glazed lean-to conservatory below the asbestos-slate-hung gable, with a 4-pane sash. The right gable has stone slatehanging, with a later C19 brick extension. The brick dentil course referred to in RCHME no longer survives. INTERIOR: not inspected. The villa probably had a generous surrounding plot when first built, but is now enclosed by later development to Horsford Street, and to the rear.
