Appraisal

This house, which has been extensively renovated over the years leading to the loss of most of the original fabric and some of the original character, retains some of its original balanced form to the upper floors. The house also retains some important early features and materials to the ground floor, including the dressing and fittings to the window opening. The house forms an important component of the streetscape of Merchant's Quay, continuing the common streetline of the street while contributing to the varied roofline of the terrace.
