Appraisal

This building retains many notable features such as the timber bargeboards to the dormer windows, slate roof and sash windows, which help to preserve the original appearance of the structure. The survival of the raised marbelised lettering on the fasica board is of considerable significance. Its roofline distinguishes the building, and makes it a more notable structure in the Croom streetscape.
