Appraisal

An attractive, small-scale house, built as one of a terrace of six identical units, which retains its original form and much of its early character. However, the gradual replacement of traditional-style fenestration with inappropriate modern articles threatens the integrity of the composition. The house, together with the remainder of the terrace (22829005, 14/WD-09-29-05, 14), forms an attractive component of the streetscape, conceding to the topography of the slightly sloping site through the use of a stepped roofline.
