Appraisal

This house, despite renovations in the late twentieth century that have led to the loss of a considerable amount of the original fabric, retains its original balanced form, together with some important early surviving features and materials. Of particular interest is the timber shopfront, which is of some artistic design quality. The house remains an important feature of the streetscape, contributing to the historic character of O'Connell Street.
