Appraisal

Part of an attractive set piece consisting of six houses with central carriage opening which stand out within the streetscape for their fine moulded render detailing. The house is a handsome example of nineteenth-century architectural development in Irish towns. The render detailing adds a note of artistic interest to its fa├žade.
