From its corner site this two-story Classical Revival brick former post office presents two facades. The principal one facing Piccadilly Street features a stone two-story flat-topped portico with four Ionic columns. Behind the portico, Ionic pilasters frame the bays, and rectangular panels with stone swags further accent the facade. A narrower, less-detailed portico with Ionic columns is on the side elevation. The building is now used for office and commercial purposes.
