This house, built as one of a terrace of seven identical units, is an attractive, modest-scale building that retains its original form together with important salient features and materials. The house is distinguished by the later rendered façade enrichments, which are of artistic interest and which attest to high quality local craftsmanship. The house, together with the remainder of the terrace (22501770, 3/WD-5632-21-788, 91), forms an interesting component of the streetscape of Summer Hill, the sloping roofline following the topography of the site.
