Appraisal

A middle-size house built as one of a pair (with 12001015/KK-4766-14-15) forming an appealing element of the streetscape of High Street. Having been comprehensively restored retaining most of the original composition attributes together with replacement fittings alluding to the historic models on site the house continues to make a positive visual impression in an historic setting. A symmetrically-planned shopfront exhibiting clean lines with little extraneous ornamentation represents a positive if somewhat generic example of turn-of-the-century contemporary design.
