Appraisal

Fine nineteenth century building retaining scale and form. Shopfront, though modified, appears virtually intact with several original decorative elements to the cornice and fascia. Internal hall to ground floor retains stucco cornice, centrepiece and brackets. Distinctive in its own right as well as being significant to the character of the streetscape.
