Appraisal

This relatively large house is one the few on the street with a half-basement, which is facilitated by the rising of the ground towards the cathedral precinct. Its fa├žade is enlivened by the render quoins and window surrounds. The carriage arch, leading to a yard at the rear, adds context and the flight of limestone steps with cast-iron railings adds a sense of grandeur to the house and to the street.
