Appraisal

This early Victorian building is typical of terraced houses built as the city developed beyond the North Circular Road in the middle of the nineteenth century. It forms a significant part of the architectural heritage of Cabra Road, adding character to the streetscape. Some slight variations in design are evident between this house and the neighbouring terraces such as the differences in roof line, window heights and the design of the doorcase. Of particular note is the doorcase with its teardrop fanlight.
