A substantial house of balanced, Georgian proportions, which retains its original form, although the external appearance is not enhanced by the inappropriate replacement fittings to the openings. The house incorporates an attractive doorcase having unusual panelled reveals, while the retention of natural slate hanging to the side (south-east) elevation is important. The house contributes to the streetscape value of Catherine Street and is one of a group of houses of formal quality in the street.
