Appraisal

An appealing, substantial Georgian house of balanced proportions, which retains its historic integrity and appearance. The house retains many important salient features and materials. Of particular interest is the shopfront to ground floor (accommodating two separate commercial units), which is of artistic merit, and which incorporates Classically-derived motifs. The house occupies a prominent site in Parade Quay, and contributes to the historic character of the streetscape.
