Appraisal

This former domestic dwelling, located in the centre of the historic city, has been well maintained and has retained certain aspects of its historic fabric, such as the timber sliding sash windows and natural slate roof. The shopfront has a similar fa├žade to that of 'Crystal Blue', next door, thereby enhancing the appearance and uniformity of the streetscape.
