Appraisal

A well-composed middle-size house built as one of a group of three units (with 12000139 - 40/KK-4766-09-139 - 40) forming a picturesque assemblage enlivening the streetscape value of John's Bridge or The Horseleap Slip. Fine rendered dressings in the Classical manner contribute significantly to the architectural design value of the composition while a shopfront of artistic design interest displaying expert craftsmanship further enhances the aesthetic value of the site. However, the external expression of the house has not benefited from the insertion of inappropriate replacement fittings to the window openings.
