This house, probably originally built as two separate houses, retains some of its original form and character, despite renovation in the mid twentieth century to accommodate a commercial use to ground floor. The timber shopfront is an attractive addition to the composition and alludes to the true traditional Irish model, composed on a symmetrical plan and without extraneous ornamentation – this feature ought to be retained in future development of the building. The pubfront emphasises the social and historic importance of the house, representing early evidence of the commercialisation of the locality. The house retains its original appearance to the first floor, with important early or original salient features intact, including timber sash fenestration. The house is an attractive feature on the streetscape of Main Street, continuing the established streetline and roofline of the street.
