Appraisal

The proportions and scale of this townhouse create a pleasing facade which adds to the historic character of the streetscape. The timber sash windows, granite sills and mellow brick work are among its noteworthy features and materials. It may have originally been a merchant's house, with a shop or office at the ground floor, suggested by the enlarged window opening at this level, with domestic accommodation above. By the mid-nineteenth century the premises was a combined with No. 11 to the south, and accommodated solicitors, a printer and the Drapers' Assistants Association.
