Appraisal

This house, built as one of a pair, is of social and historic interest as part of a group of late eighteenth-century terraced houses that form the core of the earliest part of Rathangan. Built as one of a pair with the house immediately to south-east (11810045/KD-17-10-45), the house has been extensively renovated over the years leading to the loss of much of the early fabric, although the original form remains intact. Now disused and in an advanced state of dereliction, the construction is sound and the house is ideally suited for restoration and inhabitation. The house is an integral component of the streetscape of Leinster Street, continuing the established streetline of the terrace and forming an attractive termination point to that terrace, while contributing to the undulating roofline of the north-west end of the street.
