Appraisal

An interesting mid-sized house which retains its original form and massing. This building is distinguished by the fine doorcase, which enhances the architectural value of the composition. Built as a pair with the house to the immediate north (15000034), this structure makes a positive contribution to the streetscape of Athlone.
