Appraisal

This house is a fine and substantial building that has a prominent impact on the streetscape on the road leading into the historic core of Ballymore Eustace from the west. Although renovated in the late twentieth century, leading to the loss of the original form of the integral carriageway, the remainder of the composition retains much of its early or original character. The house retains some important early salient features, including a slate roof with cast-iron rainwater goods. The house is of some social and historic interest, representing a component of the continued development of the historic core of Ballymore Eustace in the mid nineteenth century.
