Appraisal

A house erected as one of a terrace of five houses (including 15602052) representing an integral component of the domestic built heritage of Bunclody with the architectural value of the composition suggested by such attributes as the compact square plan form; the diminishing in scale of the openings on each floor producing a graduated tiered visual effect; and the high pitched roof. Having been well maintained, the elementary form and massing survive intact together with substantial quantities of the original fabric, both to the exterior and to the restrained interior, thus upholding the character or integrity of a house making a pleasing visual statement in Church Street.
