Ruled-and-line rendered walls with raised block quoins to east end. Square-headed window openings with cut stone sills and one-over-one pane timber sliding sash windows.

Appraisal

This substantial house, originally built has part of a formal terrace, retains its character and form. The massive chimneystack suggests that this building was constructed during the mid-to-late eighteenth-century. Pleasantly proportioned, this building could be transformed by a sensitive restoration and remains an important component of the streetscape of O'Connell Street.
