Appraisal

Contributing positively to the character of the townscape a pleasant well-composed middle-size house built as one of a pair (with 12323002/KK-32-23-02) occupies a prominent position in the centre of Inistioge. The retention of most of the essential attributes together with substantial quantities of the early fabric further contributes to the historic quality of the site in the street scene.
