Appraisal

A well-proportioned middle-size house, built as part of a planned group of four houses (with 22821011 - 12/WD-31-21-11 - 12), which enhance the streetscape quality of Strand Side South. Carefully maintained, the house presents an early aspect, with replacement fittings installed in keeping with the original integrity of the design. The survival of the wrought iron gates and railings to the forecourt contributes to the historic quality of the street scene, while the survival of the original coach house to the grounds enhances the group and setting qualities of the site.
