Appraisal

This attractive building is a fine example of architectural developments in the later nineteenth century and stands out within the streetscape both for its brick construction within predominantly rendered surroundings and handsome timber shopfront. Fine timber sliding sash windows with margin lights contribute to the overall pleasing appearance of this building and its balanced proportions conform well to surrounding architectural topography.
