Appraisal

Contributing positively to the character of the townscape a pleasant well-composed middle-size house built as one of a pair (with 12323001/KK-32-23-01) occupies a prominent position in the centre of Inistioge. Notwithstanding a number of alteration works to the ground floor including the removal of an early traditional Irish pubfront the retention of most of the essential attributes together with substantial quantities of the early fabric contributes to the historic quality of the site in the street scene.
