Description
Terraced four-bay two-storey house, built c.1850. Pitched natural slate roof with rendered chimneystacks and cast-iron rainwater goods. Ruled-and-line rendered walls over rendered plinth with raised rendered quoins to corners. Square-headed window openings with cut stone sills and one-over-one pane timber sliding sash windows. Square-headed doorcase with replacement timber panelled door and plain overlight above. Road-fronted towards the centre of Clonmellon Village.

Appraisal

A modest structure of balanced proportions and symmetry. It is typical of early-to-mid nineteenth-century dwellings in small Irish towns and its modest architectural form is enhanced by the retention of original features and materials. This structure may have been built originally as a pair of separate dwellings. This building makes a positive contribution to the streetscape of close to the centre of Clonmellon village.
