Appraisal

This house is part of a terrace of similar early nineteenth-century houses at the southwest end of Summer Street North. Although it has been modernised, with the rendering of the facade and the replacement of sash windows, it retains a good timber doorcase. Early features such as the entrance door with its carved console brackets and fluted pilasters are architecturally significant and give character not to only the house, but the wider streetscape.
