Appraisal

Greenore, a small seaside village, was developed towards the end of the nineteenth century to house the workers on the Great Northern Railway along with those of the new harbour which was completed in 1873. This house was built as part of a terrace of six identically designed houses built predominantly with limestone, elevations and yellow brick surrounds to the openings creating a contrast on the façade.
