Appraisal

A well-maintained red brick house of modest scale, forming part of a terrace of nine houses in a quiet cul-de-sac. An identical terrace is situated opposite. This house retains most of the external features, and along with the remainder of the terrace, is a good example of early suburban housing from the turn of the century.
