  • (Photograph by Gerald Moorhead )

This U-shaped limestone house was the last work by Giles for the Ingenhuett family, for whom he designed the Ingenhuett Hotel ( NB29) and two store buildings at 830–834 High Street. Giles's typical care in masonry detailing is present on the house, especially on the attenuated limestone columns of the front porch.
