Appraisal

Despite extensive renovation works in the late twentieth century that have led to the loss of most of the historic fabric, this house retains much of its original form and massing, while rendered detailing enhances the architectural value of the composition. The house occupies an important corner site, and contributes to the appeal of the streetscapes of Barronstrand Street and Arundel Lane.
