House, No. 12, three storeys high and five bays wide, was built in the first half of the 18th century but was largely refitted late in the same century. At the beginning of the 19th century the front was modified when the windows of the top storey were reduced in number from five to three. The ground floor is now occupied by modern shops.

The front is built in red brick with a projecting band of five courses over the first-floor windows. The central doorway retains the original moulded timber architrave and dentilled cornice carried on console brackets. The house is L-shaped on plan with a central entrance and staircase between two front rooms, and a back wing containing two rooms.
