A house representing an important component of the built heritage of Kilkenny with the architectural value of the composition, one originally intended as the residence of the governor of the nearby military barracks (see 12004005), confirmed by such attributes as the compact rectilinear plan form; the hybrid doorcase juxtaposing a Classical-style Gibbsian frame with a Gothic-style fanlight to picturesque effect; the uniform or near uniform proportions of the openings on each floor with those openings showing near flush fittings; and the high pitched roof. Having been well maintained, the form and massing survive intact together with substantial quantities of the original fabric, both to the exterior and to the interior, thus upholding the character or integrity of a house making a pleasing visual statement in John's Green.
