Appraisal

The regular but varied forms of the two blocks, as well as their size and scale, makes this building a notable part of the streetscape. The façade is enlivened by the fine rendered shopfront with coloured glass and recessed entrance. This house and shop terminates a particularly intact and rare example of a typical, traditional, small-town streetscape, and complements the adjoining forecourt of the former bishop’s palace.
