This house, despite alterations to ground floor to accommodate a commercial use, is well maintained and retains most of its original form and character to the upper floors. Built as one of a group of five terraced houses, the house is one of a pair with a further house to the extreme south of the group (22501155/WD-5632-21-161). The house retains important early or original salient features and materials, including decorative render work to the first floor. The house, together with the remaining houses in the group (22501152 - 5/WD-5632-21-158 - 61), is an attractive component of the streetscape, forming the corner linking Arundel Square with Blackfriars Lane.
