Replacement timber casement windows, c.1990, to ground floor. Elliptical-headed door opening with moulded rendered surround having entablature over on consoles, and replacement timber panelled door, c.1990, with sidelights and spoked fanlight.

Appraisal

This house is an attractive, substantial building of much character, composed of balanced proportions on a symmetrical plan. Well maintained, the house retains many important original salient features and materials while replacement fittings to some openings, although not in the form of the original models, respect the integrity of the original design. The house is distinguished by the fine rendered detailing and the brick dressings, which provide a subtle polychromatic visual effect. The house is a sophisticated feature in the streetscape of The Glen and is complemented by a fine gateway to north-east, which is an unusual feature in the street.
