Porch roof supported on timber arch beam on corbels, dentillated eaves. Painted roughcast rendered walls to first floor, painted lined-and-ruled rendered walls to ground floor, with painted moulded string courses and plinth.

Appraisal

One of several well designed and constructed Edwardian houses on Brickfield Lane indicating the prosperity of Wicklow town in the early twentieth century. The use of applied decorative render adds interest to the fa├žade. The retention of original fabric including chimney pots, rainwater goods, and timber windows creates an appropriate patina of age.
