Appraisal

The 'Survey of gable-fronted houses and other early buildings' by Dublin Civic Trust in 2012, states 'Largely redeveloped in the eighteenth and nineteenth-centuries, this former house may date from the early eighteenth-century and may have been gable-fronted, suggested by its centrally-placed chimneystack, graduated windows at third floor level, partial closet return to the rear and overall composition.' The building contributes significantly to the historic built form of Mary Street, located in one of Dublin's oldest commercial areas.
