The one-story residential building was built at the turn of the 18th and 19th centuries. It has a rectangular base with two unequal courtyard wings. On the right side there is a wide semi-circular entrance and a vaulted corridor with divided ports of slightly angled side walls.
The basement is located under the far left part of the street building, vaulted with a semi-shaped vault with branches open to the street facade. The winding staircase on the courtyard side leads to the entrance hall of the first floor with a communication balcony of iron construction. The rooms on the ground floor and on the first floor are under flat ceilings. The roof is pitched, covered with pepper tiles, the walls are plastered and painted. On the exterior side, there is an older vertical skylight with a shape characteristic of the substructure. In the continuation of the left wing, there is a one-story building (once a ground floor building), today functionally connected to the main building, so that at first glance it gives the impression that it is a single wing of the main building. Downstairs there is a low utility building, in one part adapted for an apartment.
In the lower part of the plot, opposite the main building, there is a particularly interesting one-story residential building whose gable rests on the sub-wall-ramparts directly below Ludwig’s Gate. The characteristic foundation of this building can already be seen on the plan from 1720. Throughout all depictions of the Petrovaradin fortress up to the 80s of the 18th century, the front part of the plot was unbuilt and was marked as part of the street network, an extension of today’s Lisinski Street. The ground floor of the L-base has massive walls vaulted with half-shaped vaults on divided ports and pronounced vaulted branches. The right part is residential, while the left part is dug into the ground and serves as a storage room. According to the tenants, it used to be a slaughterhouse. Above is a staircase and a terrace paved with fortress brick, from which the stairs lead to the very foot of Ludwig’s bastion. Above the right part, a residential floor was subsequently built, which is accessed by an open staircase. Woodwork from the beginning of the 20th century has been preserved in the apartment on the first floor. The roof is covered with biber tile on two sides, and the windows on the facade are reconstructed, three-part, or four-part. On the side, on the ground floor, one original window with an authentic iron frame has been preserved.
The street facade of the main building is divided by four shallow ramps into three unequal parts. The facade on the ground floor has been reconstructed, the opening of the shop has been pierced at the place of the two windows next to the gate, and the plaster profile from the remaining two windows, as well as the molding on the right side, have been removed.
The ground floor is separated from the first floor by an accented profiled cornice. The windows of the first floor are in a shallow plaster frame with sunken fields in the parapet in a form characteristic of buildings in Beogradska Street and Bishop Nikolaja Square. In the zone between the attic cornice and the shallow cordon cornice that connects the upper edges of the first-floor windows, a similar decoration is repeated with dimensions adjusted to the shape of the sunken fields dictated by the rhythm of the window and window sills.
