House, No. 95, of three storeys, on plan forms a long narrow rectangle and is of two separate builds: the front part, timber-framed, is probably of the 16th century; the extension at the back, in brick, is of the late 17th century, as are the chimney and adjacent staircase at the junction of the two parts. In Victorian times, the ground-floor room to Micklegate was converted to a shop and the upper storeys cement rendered. For a half-century from 1800 this was the barber's shop of James Mackerill; since the mid 19th century the house has belonged to the owners of No. 97.

At the front the simple shop front and the windows are of the 19th century, but the original jetty of the first floor survives. The back is built of thin bricks typical of late 17th-century work in York; it has a projecting band at second-floor level.

Inside, the timber studding of the side walls is visible on all floors. A fireplace to the rear has a late 18th-century cast-iron grate, by Carron, of duck's-nest design, enriched with foliage, with vesica-shaped panels containing cherubs playing a drum and a flute. The staircase has shaped flat balusters (Fig. 17d). At the centre of the back part is a roof truss with curved upper crucks.
