Appraisal

This well-proportioned house is part of an intriguing terrace, shaped to adhere to the curve of the road and forming an important component within the streetscape of Earl Street. The attractive arched shopfront has beautiful detailing to its fanlight in the form of interlacing circles, giving it artistic significance. The survival of the sliding sash windows is also noteworthy.
