Square-headed door opening with surround as per windows and replacement timber door opening onto limestone step to street.

Appraisal

A pleasant stucco-fronted terraced house forming part of a terrace of four, most closely resembling No. 18 in its façade treatment. Retaining most external features except windows and door, it forms an attractive aspect to the street.
