Appraisal

This Georgian townhouse stands in a terrace on the east side of Buckingham Street Lower. Although much altered it nonetheless retains the form and general character of the original, and the retention of the stone flags to the entrance and of the iron railings and granite plinth to the front boundary adds to the relative intactness of the Georgian streetscape.
