A fine late Victorian suburban house with decorative bargeboards. The retention of original fabric including chimney pots, rainwater goods, and timber windows creates an appropriate patina of age. The mass production of red brick in the nineteenth century made it a reliable and affordable building material, making it popular for decorative effects. Its use here enhances and adds definition to the form of the building.
