Ground floor windows: moulded cills, rusticated and pedimented framing with numerous moulded motifs. First floor windows rusticated, gargoyle masks, fluted keystone moulding and dentil cornice. Panelled timber door, overlight and margin lights, bordered by render panels. Cement mock-rustic-timber porch canopy supported by a pair of boyish woodland nymphs as eccentric caryatids.

Notes and references

  1. Although the property is described as late 19th century, it is believed to be somewhat later than this. John Reed and his wife are recorded as living here in the 1911 census, and also in a 1905 almanac, but the house was not listed in the 1900 almanac and the 1901 census shows them living in Clearview Street
