This house, built as one of a pair (second in pair not included in survey), is an attractive modest-scale composition that is of importance as one of the final houses on Parnell Street to remain in its original residential use. Extensively renovated leading to the loss of most of the original fabric, the replacement fittings allude to the original models, although fashioned in inappropriate modern materials. The house remains an important component of the streetscape, following the topography of the street.
