Appraisal

This fine late Georgian house is set back from Upper Gladstone Street and is a noticeable and imposing addition on this approach into the town. It regular fenestration, overhanging eaves and deep symmetrical chimneystacks enhance the form of the structure, and features such as the timber portico and bay window enliven the fa├žade.
