Appraisal

This attractive Victorian house has retained its handsome proportions. The façade with its two canted bays, either side of the doorway, has an elegant symmetry highlighted by the timber sliding sash windows. Built as one of a pair this house continues to play a positive role in the built heritage of the area.
