Appraisal

This house is an attractive, modest-scale building of balanced proportions and symmetrical appearance that retains its original form, together with important early-surviving salient features and materials. The house is an important component of the streetscape, continuing the stepped roofline that follows the topography of the area while contributing to the historic character of Summer Hill.
