Appraisal

A substantial house built as one of a group of three identical units (with 12001012, 4/KK-4766-14-12, 4) incorporating pleasing proportions with the diminishing in scale of the openings on each floor lending a formal quality making a positive impression in the streetscape: rendered accents in the Classical manner displaying high quality craftsmanship further enhance the elegant quality of the composition. Despite the insertion of pubfront of little inherent design distinction to the ground floor the survival of the original composition attributes elsewhere together with substantial quantities of the early fabric both to the exterior and to the interior ensures that the house continues to make a positive contribution to the character of the historic High Street.
