Appraisal

A fine, well-proportioned late Georgian house that has been well maintained to present an early aspect, retaining its original form and massing, together with important salient features and materials. The house is distinguished in the streetscape by the projecting entrance bay incorporating an appealing doorcase, together with the window opening fashioned from a former carriageway. The survival of an attendant coach house to the grounds contributes significantly to the historic character of the site.
