GV II House of late C18 date. MATERIALS: The house is constructed of stucco over Pennant rubble with vertically hung clay tiles to the principal elevation and steeply pitched pantile roof. PLAN: It is double depth in plan, of two storeys with attic and three bays. FAÇADE: At ground floor the 4-panel door with overlight is sited at the left hand end beneath a flat canopy on scrolled brackets. To the right are a pair of flush 6/6 sash windows with architrave. At first floor are three sashes. The two attic dormers have casement windows. There are two brick stacks, one to the right gable end and an axial stack. INTERIOR: Not inspected (2006).
