A richly detailed and eclectic house with arts-and-crafts style influences. It is unusual to find a house of this nature outside of the inner suburbs of the bigger cities in Ireland. It retains its original form and most of its early fabric. This house was built by R.V. Smith to designs by the architect W.A Tanner. It housed an organisation known as 'The Athlone Club' until 1917. It remains an attractive feature on the Ballymahon Road in an important terrace of late nineteenth-century houses of varying design and appearance.
