Appraisal

This house, built as one of a pair, is an important middle-size composition that retains most of its original form and massing. However, extensive renovation works in the late twentieth century have resulted in the loss of most of the original fabric, which has not had a positive effect on the historic expression of the house. Nevertheless, the house, together with the second in the pair (22501330/WD-5632-21-342), remains an attractive feature in the streetscape.
