Appraisal

This eighteenth-century building is characteristic in retaining its gable fronted roofline in area of the city where similar buildings have been altered to create a horizontal roofline. The style of its recent refurbishment, particularly the refenestration and the stone cladding, limits its contribution to the overall character of the streetscape.
