Appraisal

The building is a particularly important contributor to the architectural heritage of Cork, as few early eighteenth-century domestic buildings survive. This former house retains many interesting features and materials, such as the carved limestone pedimented door case, moulded limestone sills, and interior fixtures and fittings. The interior features include timber panelled doors, shutters, and floor to ceiling paneling, and elaborate stucco work.
