Appraisal

An elegantly-proportioned and highly detailed house that retains its original form and fabric to the upper floors. The house is distinguished by the fine rendered detailing throughout, which is of artistic merit, and which includes an appealing decorative panel containing figurative motifs. However, the integrity of the entire composition has been undermined by an inappropriate replacement shopfront of little artistic design merit, which does not enhance the appeal of the house at street level.
