A middle-size house retaining the original balanced proportions to the upper floors together with much of the historic fabric, thereby enhancing the character of the site in the streetscape despite some alteration works to the ground floor that have not had a beneficial impact on the external expression of the site. Medieval fabric having been uncovered in the late twentieth century includes a Tudor window frame identifying the importance of the site in the sixteenth-century archaeological legacy of Kilkenny City.
