No. 64 was built at the end of the 17th or the beginning of the 18th century as a small two-storey house which probably had two rooms on each floor and a small projection at the back for a staircase. In the late 18th century the depth of the house was increased by the addition of rooms at the back under a second span roof parallel to the original. Later the two roofs were incorporated into one and the central valley eliminated. The front has been stuccoed and completely modernised but retains a rainwater head dated 1770. The wooden frame of a staircase window remains in the original back projection.
