Appraisal

Built approximately a century after the adjoining former house to the east, this former mews forms an interesting pair of formerly related domestic structures. The modest scale and form of the building contrasts with the larger buildings in the street. The materials utilised in the construction of this former mews add colour and textural interest to the building.
