Two storeys and attic, over basement, 3+3 bays, the fronts panelled so as to give the effect of simple pilasters, plus a one-bay side wing at the left end; with stone plinth, 1st-floor bands in the panelled bays, small moulded frieze to prominent projected eaves with plastered coving. The slightly-raised centre of each house has a large doorway up 3 steps, with a stone doorcase of panelled square pilasters, frieze with rosettes, and cornice with blocking course, and a panelled door with overlight (that at No.56 with margin panes); and a 1st floor window with a cornice on consoles. The windows are all 12-pane sashes with flat-arched heads, those at ground floor recessed with panelled stone aprons and those above with raised sills and plain reveals. No.54 has a large modern continuous dormer in the roof, No. 56 has 2 small dormers. The wing to the left, 2 lower storeys, has a round-headed blind window on each floor. At each end of the range is a ramped screen wall, that to the right with a similar blind window and both with doorways. The right-hand end wall of No.54 has inter alia a round-headed sashed stair window with radiating glazing bars. Rear and INTERIOR not inspected.
