Appraisal

A picturesque, modest-scale house incorporating distinctive features, including a bipartite window opening together with a carriageway, which enhance the architectural value of the site. Extensively renovated in the late twentieth century, replacement fittings have been installed with reference to the early or original models, but have been fashioned from inappropriate modern materials. Nevertheless, the house remains an important component of the streetscape, and contributes to the character of Queen's Street.
