Nos. 84, 86, a pair of small houses of three storeys and attics, were built before 1823 by which time No. 84 was occupied by John Ware, yeoman, who remained there as John Ware, gent., until 1832 or later (Directories; title deeds of No. 84, York Town Clerk's Office, File 2604/3).

The front elevation of the pair was originally symmetrical. At the centre of the composition and covering the dividing line between the houses there is a blind recess to each of the upper floors; these and the upper floor windows have segmental arches. No. 84 has a pantiled roof.
