Appraisal

An appealing mid twentieth-century local authority house, which retains much of its early character and form. This house forms part of a terrace of six houses (15310026) that together have a high quality architectural presence in the streetscape, being designed to have a collective visual impact. This house is of particular importance as it is the only building in this terrace to retain the majority of its early fittings, including attractive timber sliding sash windows with a distinctive glazing pattern. It is very rare to find a house of this type in such original condition making this house an important survival. Well-designed, this house is a good example of its type and date and is a welcome addition to the streetscape to the west end of Mullingar Town.
