No. 5 South Anne Street is a brick commercial building, dating to the early twentieth century. It is loftier than its diminutive neighbours, the latter built in the early eighteenth century. This building has good detailing and materials typical of the period, including feature sills, use of moulded brick and a first floor picture window, enhancing its commercial use. It contributes to the eclectic and varied character of a street that was laid out originally as a residential street, but that is now a bustling commercial thoroughfare defined by a mix of styles and periods.
