Appraisal

This house forms part of a group of grand houses set back from the road at Denis Quay. The imposing scale and form of these buildings indicate that they were built as high status homes in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. While this building has been recently renovated, it retains much of its historic character, discernable particularly in the imposing doorcase which forms a delightful focal point.
