A well-composed middle-size house built as one of a pair (with 12001028/KK-4766-14-28) incorporating Classically-derived proportions with the diminishing in scale of the openings on each floor contributing to the elegant quality of the streetscape: supplementary details including a finely-executed doorcase further enhance the formal quality of the composition in Patrick Street Lower. Despite the insertion of a bold shopfront to the ground floor elsewhere most of the original composition attributes survive intact together with much of the early fabric both to the exterior and to the interior although the appearance of the openings has been compromised by the addition of inappropriate outer glazing.
