Appraisal

This simple Georgian house was adapted for commercial use in 1913. It constitutes one of the few Georgian buildings remaining on the south side of Talbot street, much of the terrace having been redeveloped in recent years. This building retains much of its original form and fabric, including timber sash windows throughout and pleasant render details.
