Appraisal

A well-proportioned, modest-scale house, which retains most of its original form. However, the systematic replacement of the original fabric with inappropriate materials has not had a positive impact on the visual appeal of the structure. The house remains an important component of the streetscape, forming an unofficial advanced end bay to the terrace of houses to north-east.
