Appraisal

An appealing house of modest size distinguished by an informal, almost eclectic fenestration pattern contributing positively to the traditional streetscape value of Wygram Place: an increasingly-rare carriageway further identifies the house in the street scene. Having been well maintained, the house continues to express an early aspect with the historic fabric surviving largely in place, both to the exterior and to the interior, thus upholding some of the character of the local setting.
