Appraisal

This Regency-style house is large in scale with symmetrical and widely-distributed openings, making it an imposing feature in an area of the town composed mainly of terraces. It also provides a counterpoint to Anne Street to its west and the Church of Ireland church to its east. The fa├žade is enhanced by the retention of timber sliding sash windows and the moulded eaves course.
