36 High Street was listed by the former Department of Environment in April 1976 as Grade II, of special interest. The department dated the property to the 18th century. It is built of colour washed roughcast over a timber frame, has a thatched roof and one storey. A flat-roofed addition stands at the west gable end.

The Rating and Valuation Act 1925 specified that every building and piece of land in the country was to be assessed to determine its rateable value. Like most of Bedfordshire, Roxton was assessed in 1927 and the valuer visiting 36 High Street [DV1/C198/104] found it owned and occupied by W. Price.

The plaster and thatched building stood in a fifth of an acre and comprised a kitchen and two bedrooms above. A weather-boarded and corrugated iron barn and wood shed stood outside.
