Appraisal

A substantial house of balanced proportions, built as one of a terrace of three identical houses. Well maintained, the house retains its original form and early character, together with fittings of two periods to the window openings. The later rendered doorcase is also a distinguishing feature of the composition. The house, together with the remainder in the terrace (22504497, 5/WD-5623-22-500, 498), forms an attractive formal feature in the streetscape, while the early wrought iron railings emphasise the historic quality of the site.
