Appraisal

A pleasant, small-scale house, built as one of a terrace of seven identical units, which retains most of its original form and massing, but the external expression of which has been undermined by inappropriate renovation works in the late twentieth century. The house, together with the remainder in the terrace (22817057 - 62/WD-27-17-57 - 62), forms an appealing feature in the street scene, conforming to the topography of a sloping site through the use of a stepped roofline articulated by the gabled half-dormer attic windows.
