Appraisal

This house is an attractive building of balanced Georgian proportions that retains its original form and most of its original character. The house retains many important salient features and materials, including an attractive doorcase incorporating a delicate fanlight. However, the application of paint to the red brick fa├žade has masked a distinguishing characteristic of the piece. The house is an important component of the streetscape of O'Connell Street, contributing to the historic character of the street.
