Appraisal

Notwithstanding extensive renovation works over the course of the late twentieth century that have led to the loss of much of the historic fabric the original composition attributes of a well-composed Classically-proportioned substantial house survive intact, thereby maintaining some of the integrity of the site. Making a prominent impression in the streetscape the house is identified by the vertical emphasis of the massing with the composition appearing to rise above the flanking ranges in the street.
