Appraisal

An elegantly-proportioned house, built as part of a group of four houses of similar appearance (including 22504400 - 2/WD-5632-385 - 383), which has been extensively renovated, retaining the original form and with replacement features and fittings alluding to the original models. The house forms an important component of the streetscape, contributing to the historic character of Parnell Street.
