Appraisal

A house erected as one of a terrace of three houses representing an integral component of the later nineteenth-century domestic built heritage of Wexford with the architectural value of the composition, one allegedly occupying the site of the "castle" of the Waddings of Ballycogly (Kehoe 1985, 28), suggested by such attributes as the compact plan form; and the uniform or near-uniform proportions of the openings on each floor. Having been well maintained, the elementary form and massing survive intact together with substantial quantities of the original fabric, thus upholding the character or integrity of a house making a pleasing visual statement in Peter Street.
