Though many interesting features and materials have been replaced, this building remains a significant contributor to the architectural heritage of the city. Historical photographs of the city show the façade of this building was formerly bow-fronted. Bow-fronted facades are a notable feature of Georgian architecture in Cork city, and they contribute to the unique character of the city, as this particular housing form is not found to the same extent elsewhere in Ireland. This building may retain interior features and fittings of the late Georgian period.
