Appraisal

This terraced house is located within a terrace of seven which, despite the location on an incline, shares a uniform parapet height and a relatively uniform fenestration arrangement. The slope is accommodated by the lowering the basement level as the hill rises. The house is largely intact and the coach house, despite its significant alterations, continues to contribute to the architectural ensemble.
