Appraisal

This fine house has maintained much of its historic character through the retention of key elements including a fine door surround, sash windows and well-proportioned canted bay. This house, along with those of similar deign in the immediate surrounds, contributes positively to the streetscape which overlooks Monkstown harbour.
