Appraisal

An appealing, well-proportioned modest-scale house built as one of a group of six houses of similar appearance. Undergoing extensive renovation works, replacement fittings have been installed in keeping with the original integrity of the design, while an additional door opening has been inserted without damaging the original form significantly. Furthermore, important early-surviving features have been retained including decorative rendered dressings to some openings. The house, together with the remainder of the group (22504124 - 5, 7 - 9/WD-5632-22-135 - 134, 132 - 130), forms an attractive uniform feature of historic character in the streetscape.
