(Former listing description)

The following is from Cadw's Listed Buildings database

In the block to the E of Jehu Road.

The frontage range is built in 2 phases, and represents the partial reconstruction of an earlier building: the timber framed rear wings are probably of C17 date. This earlier building was refronted, perhaps in the mid C18, and subsequently raised in height, perhaps c1820, possibly when the adjoining property (nos 37-38) were built or rebuilt.

Frontage range is brick; rear wing box-framed with brick infil. Slate roofs. 3-storeyed, 2-window range to street, with doorway to extreme right. 6-panelled door with radial fanlight in moulded architrave with console brackets carrying entablature hood. Windows are 4-pane sashes, with finely gauged flat-arched brick heads. Low 4-pane sashes to raised second storey. End wall stacks, that to left set at the outer corner to the rear. Coved eaves cornice, continuous with Nos 37-38. Short rear wing probably contemporary with the original frontage building has queen post truss with curved tension braces exposed in gable end. Lower wing beyond this may be a slightly later addition, and is box-framed with brick panel infil; gable end stack. Beyond it is a 2 storeyed brick outhouse range, probably added in the early C19.

Single room in frontage range, and passage leading to rear staircase (plain spindle stair) and wing. Fine plaster ceiling in front room is probably part of the mid C18 rebuilding of the house: the axial and transverse beams have moulded plaster casing, and the 4 panels of the ceiling have moulded cornice with foliate decoration.

A fine C18 and later town house, which is of particular interest as it represents the partial remodelling of an earlier building.
