Appraisal

Built as a pair with the adjoining building to the east, this pair makes a positive contribution to the streetscape, due to the scale and form of the pair. Notable architectural features of the building include the tripartite windows, segmental-arched windows, and the projecting ground floor bow. The fa├žade of the building is articulated by the decorative render detail, which was clearly executed by skilled craftsmen.
