Appraisal

This former house forms part of a significant eighteenth-century terrace with the adjoining contemporary buildings to the east and with the later former house to the east. These former houses are representative of architectural design and construction at that time. The form and scale of this landmark group are enhanced by the retention of notable features and materials, such as the steeply pitched slate roof, keystones and timber sliding sash windows. The survival of interior fittings enhance the significance of this building.
