An attractive modest-scale house built as one of a pair (with 12006026/KK-4766-10-26) 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). Having been well maintained the house presents an early aspect, thereby making a positive impression on the character of the streetscape.
