Appraisal

A well-proportioned middle-size house retaining the original form and massing together with substantial quantities of the early fabric including a finely-detailed shopfront exhibiting high quality craftsmanship enlivening the visual appeal of the site at street level. Occupying a prominent corner site the house contributes positively to the historic character of the townscape.
