Appraisal

A well-proportioned house, built as one of a terrace of four identical houses, which has been extensively renovated leading to the loss of much of the original fabric. However, while the original form and massing remains intact, the inappropriate replacement fittings and materials throughout have not had a positive impact on the external expression of the composition. The house, together with the remainder of the terrace (22830008 - 09, 11/WD-09-30-08 - 09, 11), forms an attractive feature of formal appearance in the streetscape.
