Replacement 1/1 timber sash windows, c.1890.

Appraisal

This house is an attractive composition of modest appearance that has been reasonably well maintained, retaining its original form to the upper floors, together with important early salient features and materials. However, the replacement shopfront, which is over-scaled, does not enhance the appearance of the house. The house remains an important component of the streetscape of Barronstrand Street, contributing to the historic quality of the street.
