This house, built as one of a terrace of four identical houses, is an attractive and well-proportioned substantial composition that retains most of its original form and massing. However, extensive renovation works in the late twentieth century have led to the loss of most of the original fabric, and to the erosion of some of the historic quality of the site. The house, together with the remainder of the terrace (22504393, 5- 6/WD-5632-22-392, 90 - 89), forms an important component of the streetscape, and the survival of the original iron railings contributes to the historic character of the group.
