Pitched tile roof with rendered chimneystack and rebuilt red brick parapet.

Timber sash windows to first and second floors. Replacement timber shopfront to ground floor and replacement timber casement windows to third floor.

Appraisal

Built as part of a group of four with the adjoining three buildings to the north and south, this group forms a well designed piece in the streetscape, comprising of a central pair flanked by recessed buildings to the north and south. The ashlar limestone quoins, string courses and imposts articulate the fa├žade of this notable group, which is of apparent architectural design and detail. The building is enhanced by the retention of many interesting features and materials, such as the timber sash windows and some interior features.
