Appraisal

Occupying a prominent corner site, this building is an eye-catching addition to the streetscape. Despite alterations and the insertion of a shopfront at ground floor level, this former house continues to express an early aspect with much historic fabric surviving in place. The restrained exterior and diminishing in scale of the window openings on the upper floors in the classical manner contribute to its appeal.
