Appraisal

This building makes a notable and positive addition to the streetscape due to the scale and form of the building. Though now greatly altered to the ground floor, the upper levels of the building remain of architectural heritage significance due to the retention of interesting features and materials. The fa├žade of the building is articulated by the decorative render detail, and is enhanced by the retention of the timber sash windows. Building has date plaque "1828" but facade suggests a date c.1850. Date possibly refers to date of establishment of former business.
