Appraisal

This house is set among a terrace of rendered houses of varying scale, with an eaves and ridge level which is rarely even. The terrace appears to be of late eighteenth or early nineteenth century, and is not subject to the refinement of the late Georgian terraced houses which predominate in Newtown Pery further east.
