Appraisal

This former house, despite extensive renovations, has retained a great deal historic fabric. The expansive front façade is a key feature in the streetscape that stands proud of the rest of the terrace. Also of interest is the ornate doorcase with its impressive overlight and cast-iron boot scrape.
