Appraisal

Forming the end of a terrace of five houses, though relating stylistically to the terrace of nine houses to the south. This house is distinguished by the use of vitrified and glazed white brick dressing, and the uniform treatment to the front site boundary. The terrace as a whole contributes significantly to the architecture of the locality and give a domestic scale, which is juxtaposed by the Technical School to the south.
