Appraisal

A well-proportioned house, built as one of a terrace of four identical units, which has been extensively renovated leading to the loss of much of the original fabric. However, the original form and massing remains intact, while some replacement fittings have been installed in keeping with the original integrity of the design. The survival of early fittings to the interior significantly enhances the historic quality of the site. The house, together with the remainder of the terrace (22830008, 10 - 11/WD-09-30-08, 10 - 11), forms an attractive feature of formal appearance in the streetscape.
