Appraisal

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, together with some important salient features and materials. However, the gradual replacement of the fittings to the window openings with inappropriate modern articles threatens to undermine the external expression of the composition. The house, together with the remainder of the terrace (22504393 - 4, 6/WD-5632-22-392 - 91, 89), forms an important component of the streetscape, and the survival of the original iron railings contributes to the historic character of the group.
