Appraisal

A middle-size house of balanced appearance built as one a group of three identical units (with 12000075 - 6/KK-4766-09-75 - 6) forming an appealing assemblage in the streetscape. Later rendered dressings to the upper floors enliven the architectural design quality of the composition while an attractive shopfront exhibiting high quality carpentry enriches the visual appeal of the site at street level. Having been well maintained the house presents an early aspect with substantial quantities of the early fabric surviving intact, thereby making a positive contribution to an historic street scene.
