Appraisal

An appealing, modest-scale house of much character, built as part of a terrace of five identical houses (with 22830147 - 148, 294 - 295/WD-09-30-147 - 148, 294 - 295). Very well maintained, the house retains its original form and massing, together with important salient features and materials, including early cast-iron details. The house is distinguished by the projecting services block to front (south-west), which acts as a platform device providing a uniform entrance level to the terrace on the sloping site.
