Appraisal

Located within a long terrace, on an unusual triangular-plan site, this substantial house forms an integral component of the streetscape. Alterations to the fa├žade have been made in a sympathetic manner with rebuilt components giving the building a distinct appearance. The retention of historic features such as granite sills, wrought-iron railings and a pleasant doorcase further enhance the building's visual and architecutral appeal.
