Appraisal

An attractive, substantial house of balanced Georgian proportions, which retains its original form and much of its early character. However, replacement fittings to the openings using inappropriate modern materials have not had a positive impact on the external appearance of the house. An important survival is the decorative doorcase, which enhances the artistic design quality of the composition. The house forms part of a compact group of four terraced houses of sophisticated, formal appearance and similar period of construction, and makes a positive contribution to the streetscape value of The Mall.
