This substantial Georgian house was extensively renovated in recent years with sympathetic replacement fabric inserted. It retains its original doorcase, fenestration pattern and an unusual elliptical-headed window to the ground floor. Now in commercial use, the house is a rare survivor of its time and testament to the original Georgian residential character of the street adding to the great variety of building types that make up this historic streetscape.
