There are brick-walled cellars under the front part of the building, with arched coal cellars under the street, probably of 18th-century date.

Both main floors have a room at the front one and a half bays deep, a transverse staircase, a wide chimney-breast and a back room which it serves. Framing consists of posts supporting axial and transverse chamfered beams, vertcal studs and straight diagonal braces.
