Appraisal

A pleasant middle-size house retaining most of the original form and massing together with substantial quantities of the historic fabric, thereby presenting an early aspect contributing positively to the visual appeal of an historic streetscape. Fine rendered dressings exhibiting high quality craftsmanship enliven the external expression of an otherwise modestly-composed house while the survival of an early twentieth-century pubfront displaying good craftsmanship further enhances the artistic design distinction of the site.
