Appraisal

An appealing, small-scale house, built as one of a pair (with 22830049/WD-09-30-49), which retains much of its original form and early character. The house incorporates attractive architectural features, including later tripartite window openings, while the covering to the roof is somewhat typical of the period of construction, and is becoming and increasingly rare feature in the suburban landscape. The contemporary garage is also of some interest, representing the increasing emphasis on the motor car as a primary form of transport.
