Appraisal

A pleasantly composed house of small to modest size representing an element of the redevelopment of John Street in the mid twentieth century whereby thatched ranges once characterising the vernacular legacy of Wexford Town were systematically replaced. Having been well maintained, the house continues to project an early aspect with most of the original fabric surviving in place, thereby making a positive contribution to the character of the street scene.
