Appraisal

A well-composed Classically-proportioned substantial house making a pleasing impression on the visual appeal of John Street Lower. Retaining the original composition attributes extensive renovation works have sought to replicate most of the early details with the result that the house continues to contribute positively to the historic quality of the street scene.
