Appraisal

A picturesque small-scale house, built as one of a pair (with 22821097/WD-31-21-97), which retains its original form and massing, together with important salient features and materials to the upper floors, which enhance the historic appeal of the composition in the streetscape. The house is of additional importance on account of its associations with an early nineteenth-century urban planning project initiated by the Duke of Devonshire, centred on Grattan (originally Market) Square.
