Appraisal

This house is now interconnected and in use with No.61, having an identical granite shopfront to its neighbour and together they form a pleasing composition at ground floor level. The later shopfront complements the overall composition of the fa├žade and adds to the variety of building types and layered development of this historic streetscape.
