Carved limestone Roman Doric portico to square-headed entrance door, with moulded cornice, triglyphs and roundels to frieze, and freestanding columns.

Appraisal

The elegant façade of this terraced building makes a positive contribution to the streetscape. The fine portico and distinctive form of its access steps lends an air of grandeur to both the house and street. The off-centre setting of the entrance opening does not reduce the effect of proportion on this façade, with its diminishing windows.
