A middle-size house of balanced appearance built as one a group of three identical units (with 12000076 - 7/KK-4766-09-76 - 7) forming an appealing assemblage in the streetscape: incorporating the fabric of a medieval (pre-1700) range on site the house represents an integral component of the archaeological legacy of the locality. The retention of most of the early attributes significantly enhances the contribution the house makes to the historic quality of the street scene while a finely-executed shopfront of artistic design merit possibly influenced by the output of the Kilkenny Woodworkers Company enriches the external expression of the composition at street level.
