Appraisal

This house, although extensively renovated leading to the loss of most of the original fabric, retains its original balanced form and is an important anchor site forming the corner linking Barronstrand Street with John Roberts Square. The house retains some early features, including the fittings to the door opening, which contribute to the historic quality of the site.
