Appraisal

Designed by William Tinsley for Robert Davis, this house has an interesting irregular appearance. Its height and scale as well as its prominent site mark it out in Coleville Road, an area which developed in the mid-1800s as a residential area for prosperous merchant and professional families. It incorporates architectural elements typical of its style such as the steeply-pitched roofs and the pointed arches to the porches and its fa├žade is enlivened by features such as the render label-mouldings and pilasters.
