Appraisal

An attractive modest-scale house built as one of a pair (with 12006027/KK-4766-10-27) identified in the street scene by the inventive features enhancing the architectural design value of the composition including an elegant Classically-derived Venetian-style opening reminiscent of an arrangement associated with contemporary houses developed in the Newtown suburb of nearby County Waterford (see Holmacre (House) and Gortmore (House) in NIAH Waterford County Survey 2003). Despite extensive renovation works including the replacement of much of the original fabric leading to the erosion of some of the character of the site the retention of the original composition qualities maintains the integrity of the assemblage in the streetscape.
