Pitched slate roof, clay ridge tiles, stone verge coping to north gable, red brick corbelled chimneystacks, clay pots, cast-iron gutters fixed to red brick corbelled eaves course, circular cast-iron downpipes.

This is a modest attractive house set facing one of the main roads through Drogheda. The simple symmetrical façade is key to its appeal with timber sliding sash windows and central door highlighted by the attractive moulded surround, the only detailing to the house. Although modest in scale and simple in design the structure continues to play an important part of Drogheda's varied architecture and its architectural heritage.
