Appraisal

This house, built as one of a terrace of three identical houses, is an attractive composition of balanced proportions that has been reasonably well maintained. The house retains its original form to the upper floors, together with important early salient features and materials. The house, together with the remainder in the terrace (including 22501060/WD-5632-21-60), is an important component of the streetscape of O'Connell Street.
