Appraisal

The façade of this building is enlivened and enhanced by the decorative render detail including the sill courses and window surrounds. Ornate render mouldings were applied to many buildings in Cobh in the later part of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This render detail creates continuity and contributes to the character of the town.
