This fine house is the centrepiece of a superb terrace which appears much earlier than its mid-nineteenth century date would suggest. Retention of original elements such as the full-width balcony and fanlight contribute to its substantial architectural and historic value. The rubble stone outbuildings to the rear add further architectural and historical interest to this particular house. The terrace is of special interest for being entirely symmetrical about a central axis located on the entrance to this property with a three-two-three-two-three rhythm with subtle variations, all of which respect the overall composition.
