Recent shopfront comprising tiled wall surrounding square-headed opening having aluminium fittings. Segmental-arched carriage arch, render to surrounding wall, double-leaf steel gate.

Appraisal

Maintaining the parapet height and fenestration alignment of its neighbouring buildings, this house contributes positively to the horizontal aspect of the streetscape. The carriage arch is an interesting feature, providing access to rear outbuildings. Its regular fenestration pattern contributes a pleasing sense of symmetry to the facade. Despite the addition of a recent shopfront, the building retains its early character and charm.
