Appraisal

An elegant, well-proportioned house, built as one of a terrace of eight units, which retains its original form and massing, together with some important salient features and materials. However, the gradual replacement of the original fittings to the window openings with inappropriate modern articles threatens the historic character of the composition. The house, together with the remainder of the terrace (including 22830111, 145 - 146, 271, 3 - 4/WD-09-30-111, 145 - 146, 271, 3 - 4), is an appealing component of the townscape, positioned on a slightly elevated site overlooking John's Hill.
