Square-headed window openings with moulded rendered sills and surrounds, and moulded tablatures to openings to first floor. 1/1 timber sash windows.

Appraisal

This house, which has been well maintained to retain its original balanced form, is an attractive modest feature of the streetscape of Michael Street. The house is distinguished by the rendered dressings to the openings and to the parapet. The house retains some important early or original salient features and materials, while the replacement shopfront, designed as a symmetrical piece, serves to complement the entire scheme.
