This infill Victorian house largely respected the proportions and context of the area, maintaining the parapet height of the rest of the terrace. Its round-headed first floor casement window, three-centred doorway and varied window openings, provides much visual interest to the facade. the retention of iron railings and the granite steps to the entrance, provide a suitable setting.
