Probably early to mid 19th Century in origin it is difficult to see the brick work due to rendering on the first and second floors (windows indicate two floors, although they must be small in stature) and a modern shop façade constructed of stainless steel and wood. One small brick chimney is visible giving the only indication of Flemish bonding.

Materials used: The property is constructed of brick in Flemish bond, the majority of which is covered by render. The roof is slate and gable in form.
