Appraisal

This house is part of a terrace of five similarly scaled, modest former townhouses abutting a further terrace of seven houses built at an angle following the curve of North Circular Road. It retains its fenestration pattern, Ionic doorcase and original front railings, adding to the overall composition of this attractive terrace of late Georgian townhouses.
