Appraisal

A substantial house incorporating Classically-derived proportions forming an integral component of a formal streetscape. A finely-carved doorcase displaying high quality stone masonry enlivens the external expression of an otherwise sparsely-detailed composition while iron railings further enhance the street presence of the site. Retaining most of the original fabric throughout including timber joinery and plasterwork accents of artistic design significance to the interior the house makes a positive contribution to the visual appeal of an historic street scene.
