Appraisal

Built as a pair with the adjoining building to the east, this pair of former houses is an notable addition to the streetscape, due to the scale and form of the pair. They are flanked by single-storey over basement former wings, which enhance the pair. This group forms an imposing piece in the streetscape. The building retains many interesting features and materials, such as the moulded parapet, timber doorcase, cast-iron railings, limestone steps and some interior features.
