Appraisal

This pair of houses is a good example of suburban housing of the early nineteenth century in Cork City. Of particular note is the single-storey porch to the side elevation, which is an unusual feature in a streetscape of front-entry houses. The decorative window architraves enliven the simple fa├žade.
