Flemish bonded brick walls to upper floors separated by moulded render string course, and painted smooth render to ground floor. Moulded stone window sills supported by pairs of carved stone corbels, and square-headed openings have one-over-one pane timber sliding sash frames with ogee horns. Flat lead roof to bay window with moulded render string course and timber cornice, with some remaining moulded detail to smooth rendered piers to inner sides of window openings which have replacement timber frames.

Cast-iron railings to front of bay window with basement window lights on ground either side of bay.

Appraisal

This elegant building has distinctive brick walling and discrete but well executed stone details. It contributes to the varied roof lines and facades of the streetscape. It has retained much of its character and original features since at least the early twentieth century as evidenced from historic photographs. The variety of materials, brick, carved stone and cast-iron enhances the visual appearance of this building.
