Wide U-plan formed by double-depth front range parallel to street with back extensions.

The 3rd bay has a Tuscan porch with dentilled cornice and balustraded parapet with ball finials protecting an elliptical-headed doorway with pilastered surround and panelled double doors, and the 6th bay has a window replacing a former doorway (presumably similar to the first); tripartite windows flanking this former doorway; otherwise, all windows are sashed without glazing bars (those at ground floor with stained glass in the upper leaves) and have emphatic moulded architraves with scrolled feet and dentilled cornices, vertically linked by panels of curvilinear patterning in the bands. INTERIOR not inspected. Forms group with nos. 54 and 56 adjoining to the left (qv).
