Appraisal

This house is an attractive and substantial house of much character, composed on a symmetrical plan and of balanced Classical proportions. Well maintained, the house is distinguished by the fine rendered detailing throughout, which enhances the artistic design quality of the composition. The retention of much original fabric to the exterior serves to suggest that the interior may also retain important early fittings and schemes of significance. The house is an important and prominent centrepiece in the streetscape, and contributes a sophisticated tone to Mayor's Walk.
