Appraisal

This house is located within a terrace of seven houses which, despite the location on an incline, shares a uniform parapet height and a relatively uniform fenestration arrangement. The acclivity is accommodated by maintaining the lowering the basement level as the hill rises. This house is relatively intact, with the original coach house extant to rear. Despite alterations to the house, which replaces original architectural features, this house continues to contribute to the architectural ensemble of the terrace.
