The one-story residential and commercial building has a foundation in the shape of the Cyrillic letter “G” with a long courtyard wing along the right furrow. The wide arched entrance, the shape of the vaults in the passage, as well as the plastic of the facade indicate that the building was built at the end of the 18th century.
In the central part of the ground floor there is an entrance and a corridor with seven bays under spherical vaults that are separated by ports.
There is one bar with flat ceilings on both sides. The vaulted basement occupies part of the building’s street and courtyard base. At the end of the corridor, on the left side, there is a wooden staircase to the floor of the street part of the building. The building was built of brick, plastered and painted. The roof is high, two-pitched on the street side, one-pitched on the courtyard, covered with pepper tiles.
The courtyard wing of the building was reconstructed in the 1990s. Only in a small part next to the street building was preserved the old construction of the communication balcony on iron brackets. On the wrought iron fence, there were initials and the year: 18EX86, according to the former owner, the year the house was renovated. The greater part of the balcony was demolished and replaced by a wider balcony on square columns, made of concrete with a canopy of a metal structure covered with corrugated salonite. At the bottom of the wing, new external concrete stairs for the first floor were constructed. The woodwork was replaced by a new, mass-produced one. In the continuation of the wing, a lower-story building with a balcony was built, which is connected by several steps to the communication balcony of the wing of the main building. The ground-floor auxiliary building at the bottom of the plot has been reconstructed and upgraded and consists of a ground floor, a first floor and a high attic. All these interventions were carried out without the approval of the protection service. The street facade of the main building is simply designed with an accentuated, arched entrance with a stone finial in the middle of the arch. The entrance door is wooden, cassetted. Along the sides of the gate, there are portals, one on each side, with double-leaf, partially glazed doors and wooden double-leaf shutters.
On the far right part of the ground floor is a double-hung window whose panes are divided into three equal parts. Between the ground floor and the first floor there is a simple profiled dividing cornice. On the first floor, there are five identical double-hung windows in plaster frames with prominent mullions. The upper edges are connected to each other with a profiled border. In the parapet fields is a shallow plasterwork with recessed, differently shaped forms of curvilinear contours and stylized rosettes applied in the center of every other parapet field. Between the windows of the first floor and the attic cornice, a similar treatment in shallow plastic is repeated, adapted to the proportions of the rectangular fields determined by the rhythm of the windows of the first floor.
