Appraisal

A substantial house of balanced proportions, built as one of a terrace of three identical houses. The house retains its original form, together with some early fittings to the openings. However, the replacement render, together with the inappropriate fittings to the top floor have not had a positive impact on the visual appeal of the house. Nevertheless, the house, together with the remainder in the terrace (22504495 - 6/WD-5623-22-500 - 499), remains an important formal feature in the streetscape, while the early wrought iron railings emphasise the historic quality of the site.
