House, No. 13, of two bays and three storeys with cellars and attics, is contemporary with No. 11 to N. but of a different build. It has the same plan and elevational treatment as No. 11 but has been more extensively altered. A shallow segmental bow window was inserted on the first floor of the front elevation in the early 19th century. The staircase, which has balusters of a more traditional pattern than those in No. 11, is the only fitting of note to survive.
