It is the left-hand one of a pair of pre-war built houses, with attractive facing brick front elevations, and the roof is of slates.

At the side and rear are very pretty gardens in lawn with two paved patio areas, floral borders, mature shrubs, and productive fruit bushes. At the rear is a detached garage, and a greenhouse.
