Appraisal

The proportions of this house, like those on Mallow Street, appear quite narrow in width compared with their height from ground level to the parapet level. It forms part of a terrace of seven houses enclosing Mallow Street to the north where the Georgian townhouses are each of a similar scale. The loss of the original coach house is regrettable as the row of coach houses behind this terrace are all but intact, forming an important historical and architectural dimension within the Georgian streetscape.
