Description
Terraced two-bay two-storey house, c.1825. Refenestrated, c.1900. One of a terrace of seven.

Square-headed window openings with stone sills. Replacement 1/1 timber sash windows, c.1900. Round-headed door opening originally with moulded cut-stone surround and archivolt (now gone), and replacement timber panelled door, c.2000, with overlight. Road fronted with stone flagged footpath to front.

Appraisal

This house, built as one of a terrace of seven identical houses, is an attractive small-scale composition that retains most of its original form and character, together with important early salient features and materials. However, the removal of the original doorcase has led to the loss of some of the architectural design distinction of the composition. The house, together with the remainder of the terrace (including 22501254, 6/WD-5632-21-264, 6), forms an integral component of the streetscape of Saint John's Avenue.
