Reasons for Listing

* Architectural interest: they are a good example of a pair of mid-C19 semi-detached villas displaying good quality architectural detailing;
* Intactness: despite some alterations they have survived mostly intact;
* Group value: they were built as part of an interesting, small suburban planned development of three near identical semi-detached villas.
