Appraisal

This building stands within a group of terraced buildings on a busy commercial street. Its design and treatment is similar to that of most of the Georgian houses in the area. This building has suffered many alterations to its façade, including removing the original sash windows, although the late addition of the gable adds interest to the street elevation.
