Appraisal

This house was built as one of a terrace of houses by the Bath Estate and originally named as Weymouth Cottages. The building, the middle of the group, is the only structure within the terrace that is gable-fronted and also has a canted porch. The well executed limestone façade is representative of fine craftsmanship.
