Appraisal

This finely proportioned building forms part of a terrace of similar properties located on this important street in Dundalk. The fenestration pattern and scale of the building is in keeping with its surroundings and it is enhanced by the quality craftsmanship of the timber sliding sash windows, doorcase and boundary railings. It is associated with Sir Francis Leopold McLintock.
