Appraisal

This building, originally built as two separate houses, is an attractive composition that retains most of its original form and fabric to the upper floors. Subsequent renovations have not had an adverse effect on the appearance of the building, and the replacement shopfront to ground floor, composed as a symmetrical design, serves to complement the entire scheme. The building is an important component of the streetscape of Barronstrand Street and is identified by the bipartite arrangement to the window openings.
