Statement of Interest

This is a smart single storey villa. The classical elements and the sawtooth skews make the building distinctive in Wilson Street where most other houses or cottages are of a more vernacular nature. A smaller dwelling is marked on the 1st edition OS map of 1858 but by 1897 this has been replaced by the present larger building. Painting of the exterior walls, skews and stacks has altered the character of the villa however, as it was not originally intended to be painted. The elevation to the street beneath the paint is coursed sandstone rubble and the surrounds to the openings are dressed ashlar.
