Appraisal

This house, built as one of a terrace of three identical houses forming the centrepiece of a group of five houses, retains most of its original form to the upper floors, together with some important early salient features and materials - however, the appearance of the house is not enhanced by the inappropriate replacement fittings to some openings, and a shopfront of little design merit. The house, together with the remaining houses in the group (22501151 - 3, 155/WD-5632-21-157 - 9, 161), remains an attractive component of the streetscape of Arundel Square.
