Appraisal

This house, built as one of a pair, has been extensively renovated in the late twentieth century, although some of the original form remains intact, together with important early or original salient features and materials. The building is distinguished by an attractive shopfront, again altered, which may incorporate fragments of an earlier model on site, including the decorative pilasters of artistic merit. The house, together with the second in the pair (not included in this survey), remains an important component of the streetscape, contributing to the varied roofline of Broad Street.
