A house erected by Nathaniel Tackaberry (1868-1951), 'Shopkeeper' (NA 1911), representing an important component of the early twentieth-century built heritage of Bunclody with the architectural value of the composition confirmed by such attributes as the compact rectilinear plan form; the construction in an unrefined local fieldstone offset by red brick or silver-grey granite dressings producing a mild polychromatic palette; and the high pitched roofline. 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 interior, including a shopfront of artistic interest making a pleasing visual statement in The Mall or Main Street at street level.
