Built as part of a pair, this substantial building makes a strong impression on the streetscape, its height, unadorned façade and good proportions accentuating its subtle grandeur. The regularity of its fenestration pattern lends a pleasing symmetry to the façade. Surviving early features include the massive shared chimneystacks, sash with exposed boxes, original timber panelling to interior, corner fireplaces and downstand roof beams.
