Appraisal

Modest and attractive house whose symmetry has a visually pleasing appearance. It retains its scale and form, as well as much interesting fabric. The front fa├žade is enlivened by the surrounds to the door and window openings. The traditional style of this structure, and its sympathetic maintenance allows its continued contribution to the streetscape. It forms an interesting pair of structures with the building adjacent to the west (13004006).
