Appraisal

The decreasing scale of fenestration, a characteristic of Georgian architecture, creates a regular and well-balanced façade, which is enhanced by a central Ionic doorcase, adding a sense of grandeur to the building. Now largely isolated, as an historic building, by structures of more recent times.
