Appraisal

This modest house was built as part of a terrace of six identically designed houses. Greenore, the small seaside village, was developed in the late-nineteenth century to service the new harbour which was completed in 1873 and the Great Northern Railway. The predominantly limestone wall contrasts with the yellow brick surrounds creating an attractive structure which retains many original features.
