Appraisal

This former house is part of a terrace of relatively intact late Georgian dwellings on a prominent shopping street. The dressed limestone ground floor is the principal feature of the building, having decorative string courses and with pilasters between the openings. The upper floors are enhanced by the raised render surrounds and sill brackets to the windows.
