Appraisal

Elegant house, built as part of a terrace, overlooking the sea. Its original form remains intact, and is enhanced by the retention of salient features such as the cast-iron railings and ornate render parapet and cornice. The cast-and-wrought-iron balcony is a feature shared with neighbouring houses, giving a sense of unity and decorative coherence to the terrace.
