Appraisal

The regular form and scale of this house are characteristic of its mid-nineteenth-century construction date. The brick facade is enlivened by the yellow brick highlights to the eaves course and chimneystacks. The most significant architectural feature is the doorcase, which is similar in design to others in the terrace. A later extension takes up the space between the house and western boundary wall of the railway.
