Appraisal

A small-scale house of modest appearance originally intended as a manse forming part of a neat self-contained group with the adjacent Methodist hall (12323006/KK-32-23-06). While the retention of the original form and massing maintains much of the integrity of the composition the external expression of the house has not benefited from the substantial replacement of much of the early fabric.
