Appraisal

This modest house shares a parapet height and fenestration pattern with its neighbours, contributing to the horizontal aspect of the streetscape. It has a regularity of design and proportion which is characteristic of Georgian domestic architecture, and is subtly enlivened by render detailing to the door and window surrounds, as well as by a spoked fanlight, which provides aesthetic interest to the fa├žade.
