Description of the Building:
One-storey building with a Baroque red corner bossage and two pictures painted on the facade. It has a lateral two wing layout, using the town wall as a middle wall.

Architectural and Historical Development:
The house was built, similar to the other houses on the street, between the two town walls. Originally, there was just a single area house here, attached to the Parkan wall on the interior side. An entresol with a black kitchen was added to the older vaulted one wing layout, most likely during the Renaissance period. The first floor has a second black kitchen and a room with a decoratively painted double flap ceiling. Later the house was extended with an annex along the exterior side of the Parkán fencing, and passages through the mural masonry were made.

Significant Architectural Features:

  • Parkán town walls entering into the first floor level
  • an inserted entresol with former black kitchen
  • a joist ceiling with a double flap, originally decorated with white painting on the foundation, repainted with ox blood during Baroque period; the ceiling is framed with oak stripe
