The front part of the house is 2-storeyed roughcast timber-framing with 2 gables and cellars; the upper part, set back from the street, is of 3-storeyed timber-framing with 2 gabled attic dormers and a modern tile roof. The building at the back was heightened early in C17. The windows and the back upper part has casement windows. The South side of the front part, on a passage way on the East, was rebuilt in brick (? circa 1929). At the North end of the passage way is an ancient wood doorframe with moulded jambs and 4-centred head. Interior. RCHM page 165b. Includes moulded ceiling beams and a (? reset) C16 fireplace; C16 and circa 1600 panelling and a queen-post roof. History. Owned circa 1600 by Alderman William Boswell, mercer, who died in 1638 and was succeeded by Dr William Boswell DCL. The latter sold in 1689 to Thomas Reeve, tobacco pipe maker, who left it to the City in 1697, for the benefit of poor widows. It was occupied by the Carter family, brush makers and fishmongers from circa 1797 to circa 1920. It was condemned in 1929, but the front was preserved and a new building made at the back; the latter, however, was damaged by fire within a few months.

All the listed buildings on the South Side form a group.
