Replacement six-over-six pane timber sliding sash and some timber casement replacements.

Appraisal

A handsome house maintaining much of its character through the retention of historic features including sash windows, a fine undulating roofline and stone sills. Its slightly asymmetrical façade is further enlivened by a discreet doorcase which forms the decorative focus of the building. The walled garden adds to its setting and context.
