Appraisal

Forming a group with a number of similar houses to the west, this house makes a notable addition to the street. It was probably built as part of workers' cottages for the Adare Manor demesne. The recessed bay and overhanging roof is similar to other picturesque style houses within the town. It retains much of its original form as well as fabric such as the red brick and timber windows
