An attractive, substantial building of balanced proportions and Classical detailing, which possibly incorporates the fabric of an earlier building as evidenced by the pitch of the roof. Well maintained, the house retains important original salient features and materials, including a traditional shopfront of artistic merit. The house is an important component of the streetscape of The Quay, contributing to the historic fabric of the street, and is distinguished by the pediment that adds variety to the roofline.
