Appraisal

This attractive house, with its tuck-pointed facade, was built as part of a pair and is situated within a wider terrace. Whilst some features, such as the original door and windows have been replaced, much of the early fabric survives. Of particular interest is the angled chimneystack to the rear elevation, a features which is found in contemporary houses in the area. The cast-iron cobweb fanlight which surmounts the entrance door forms the building's decorative focus.
