A well-composed middle-size house built as one of a group of three, originally four related houses (with 12001022 - 3/KK-4766-14-22 - 3) intended as an hotel incorporating Classically-derived proportions, thereby forming an appealing assemblage contributing to the elegant quality of the streetscape. Having been well maintained the house remains as the last in the group to present an original aspect with the essential form and massing surviving intact together with substantial quantities of the historic fabric both to the exterior and to the interior.
