Roughcast rendered walls. Square-headed openings with render surrounds and two-over-two pane timber sliding sash windows.

Square-headed opening with timber panelled door with multiple pane coloured glass overlight.

Appraisal

Notable for its symmetrical and regular façade, with diminishing windows, this building makes a pleasing addition to the streetscape. Its appearance is enhanced by the well integrated shopfront to the ground floor which adds artistic detail and adds context to the site, which is no longer in use as a shop. The multiple paned windows to the shopfront are an unusual feature.
