Appraisal

Located within a pleasant Georgian streetscape, this well-maintained townhouse has maintained much of its historic aspect. Its elegant proportions are complimented by finely arranged fenestration with granite sills and voussoirs and a timber doorcase of good quality further enhancing a classically arranged fa├žade. The retention of the iron railinsg and stone plinth to the basement area contributes to the intactness of the Georgian streetscape.
