Appraisal

An appealing middle-size house built as one of a group of three identical units (with 12000034 - 5/KK-4766-09-34 - 5) forming an attractive assemblage in the streetscape of James's Street. Despite extensive renovation works that have led to the loss of much of the historic fabric the original form and massing survive intact, thereby contributing to the integrity of the group: furthermore the survival of the fittings to the door opening, including a delicate fanlight together with early iron work to the forecourt enhances the visual appeal of the site at street level.
