Appraisal

This former house is a notable and positive addition to the streetscape due to the scale and form of the building. The three-storey scale of many of the nineteenth-century buildings on the south-west end of Mac Curtain street creates continuity and character in this part of the city. The building retains many interesting features and materials, such as the timber sash windows, timber shopfront and the stone paving leading to the carriage arch.
