No. 16, of three storeys, converted to a shop and flats, was built in the late 18th century in Flemish-bonded stock brick with bands of three courses between storeys, and narrower bands connecting the ground and first-floor window-sills. The Goodramgate front is of three bays, with the centre windows blocked above the modern shop front. The Ogleforth frontage is of four bays, with a centrally-placed entrance, now blocked. At the N.W. end, a house of the same build has been demolished, but a small part of its front elevation has been retained and the N.W. end wall rebuilt. All sash windows to the main elevations have flush frames and flat arches of gauged rubbed bricks. There is a moulded and dentilled cornice, with fluted lead rainwater heads to both street elevations. The staircase was rebuilt in the early 19th century, with one rounded end wall containing arched niches.
