Appraisal

This building makes a notable and positive addition to the streetscape due to the scale and form of the building. The façade of the building is articulated by the decorative render detail, and is enhance by the retention of the timber sash windows. The ashlar and carved stone shopfront is a notable feature of the building, and was clearly executed by skilled craftsmen.
