Appraisal

A pleasantly-composed middle-size house retaining much of the original form and massing but the external expression of which has been undermined by over-zealous renovation works that have led to the loss of substantial quantities of the early fabric. A particularly important survival therefore is the finely-detailed pubfront of artistic design distinction exhibiting high quality craftsmanship while it is believed that an early twentieth-century commercial interior supplied by the Parnall Company of Bristol survives more-or-less intact: meanwhile, rendered dressings to the upper floors link the site stylistically with a number of adjacent ranges to the south (12000076 - 7/KK-4766-09-76 - 7), thereby producing an appealing ensemble in High Street.
