Town house, now restaurant (unoccupied at time of inspection,
July 1992). Early C18; altered. Handmade red brick in Flemish
bond, with sandstone plinth and dressings, slate roof (now
felted). Double-depth double-fronted plan. 3 storeys and
attic, 2 windows, symmetrical; with a deep chamfered plinth,
sillbands to the upper floors, and prominent dentilled wooden
cornice with egg-and-dart enrichment. The doorway (up 3 steps
with C20 wrought-iron handrails on barley sugar posts) has a
shouldered architrave with plain frieze and floating pediment,
a renewed 6-panel door and plain rectangular overlight. Each
floor has 2 large oblong windows, all with wedge lintels which
have stepped voussoirs, and all now furnished with
unsympathetic C20 small-paned flush glazing. Small gabled
dormer in centre of roof. 2 side-wall chimneys at each end.
