Appraisal

This imposing pair is an integral part of the streetscape of Main Street. The design, which adheres to the curve in the street, is visually appealing. These houses, though altered at ground floor level, retain their original form and materials including late nineteenth-century single-pane timber sash windows to fa├žade, earlier multiple-pane sashes to the rear elevation and decorative yellow terracotta chimneypots to the rendered stacks.
