Appraisal

Well-composed building retaining notable features, such as the decorative render window surrounds and timber sash windows. The fine shopfront is a particularly fine addition, and is representative of the high quality of nineteenth century craftsmanship. The house presents a unified and coherent decorative scheme and as such makes a positive contribution to the streetscape.
