House, now part of school. Late C19 incorporating remains from 1748 and c1800. Brick in Flemish bond with some stone dressings. Hipped slate roof.
EXTERIOR: 4 storeys above cellars and 3 bays. The windows are sashed without glazing bars. On the ground floor there is a single window divided into 3 lights by mullions which are treated as banded columns. Brick flanking pilasters support a stone frieze and cornice. The windows to the upper storeys have segmental brick arches. The central window on the 1st floor is wider and is divided into 4 sashes. The windows above on the 2nd and 3rd floors have a central division. At the eaves there is a corbel table. At the left of the facade there are painted alternating stone quoins extending to the level of the 2nd floor window heads. These formed part of a terrace built in 1748, which included Nos 39 (qv) and 45. The doorcase, in the left-hand bay, also appears to be of this date and to be re-used. It has an architrave, enriched frieze, a pediment on console brackets, and panelled reveals. The door has 6 panels and a plain rectangular overlight.
INTERIOR: not inspected. SUBSIDIARY FEATURES: the basement area is enclosed by plain iron railings on stone copings.
