Appraisal

Well-composed and highly ornate building, which is further enhanced by the design of the late nineteenth century shopfront. High quality craftsmanship is apparent in the carved Corinthian mullions and overlight spandrels. The grape motifs suggest that if was formerly in use as a public house. The building presents a unified and ornate fa├žade and makes a positive contribution to the streetscape.
