Appraisal

This house forms part of a terrace of seven modest former townhouses abutting a further terrace of five slightly taller houses, built at an angle reflecting the curve of North Circular Road. This example retains its fenestration pattern, Doric doorcase and original front railings, adding to the general composition of this attractive terrace of late Georgian townhouses.
