Replacement timber casement windows with moulded rendered surrounds and stone sills. Round-headed door opening with timber spoked fanlight and sidelights, all with replacement glass. Replacement timber panelled door. Limestone steps over basement to door with ruled-and-lined rendered walls and piers bounding front site with wrought-iron pedestrian gate and replacement timber vehicular gates.
The façade of this well proportioned house is embellished by its decorative render detailing which, though simple, is finely-executed. Set back from the road, but appearing to be over looking the street over its half basement, this house forms a prominent feature in the streetscape of Kilcormac.
