Appraisal

This attractive house is prominently positioned at the foot of Chairman's Lane, whilst its side elevation fronts the narrower section of Newman's Mall. Its steeply pitched roof is an indicator of its eighteenth century origins. The symmetrical fa├žade, having retained its timber sliding sash windows makes a positive contribution to the streetscape onto which it faces, namely the wider section of Newman's Mall. It is clearly visible from the end of the street to the north-east.
