Appraisal

This house is an attractive, modest-scale composition that is distinguished by the subtle rendered dressings to the openings. Well maintained, the house retains most of its original from and character, together with early salient features and materials. The pubfront, which is of artistic merit, is similarly well preserved. The house is an attractive, if unassuming, component of the streetscape of Michael Street.
