Statement of Interest

Forms a near-pair with the adjacent, earlier cottage - now Nos 127, 129 & 131 Portland Street (see separate list entry). Despite the extensive loss of original glazing and the additional box-dormers, the cottage retains a degree of architectural interest. Of particular note are the long, low proportions and classical details including the fine pilastered doorpiece, deep cornice, strip quoins and corniced stacks. The original list description refers to this property as No 129 Portland Street, and groups it together with the adjacent No 131. The numbers have since changed, with this property now referred to as Nos 125 & 125A and the adjoining cottage as Nos 127, 129 and 131. The two listings have now been split (1997).
