Appraisal

A pleasant house of modest size built as one of an identical pair (second in pair not included in survey) making a pleasing impression in Weafer Street. Although the subject of a renovation programme in the late twentieth century, the elementary composition attributes prevail together with much of the historic or original fabric, both to the exterior and to the interior including a finely-detailed shopfront of artistic design interest displaying good quality carpentry or joinery.
