Appraisal

An elegantly proportioned Georgian house, which retains its original form to the upper floors, together with important early-surviving salient features and materials. However, the replacement shopfronts to ground floor, which have involved the remodelling of most of the openings to that portion, have not had a positive impact on the external appearance of the house. Nevertheless, the house remains an important component of Parade Quay, occupying a prominent corner site and contributing to the historic character of the streetscape.
