Appraisal

An imposing building due to its height and scale. It forms part of a terrace with a continuous roofline, with simple modillions throughout the length providing a decorative element. Despite alterations to the ground floors, the coherent and consistent fenestration scheme creates a pleasing whole. The carved timber shopfront and the hall door with its fine fanlight indicate skilled craftsmanship and add interest to the fa├žade.
