Appraisal

An important and appealing middle-size house, which is unique in the context of Waterford City on account of the bowed profile to the front (north-west) elevation. Presently (2004) undergoing extensive reconstruction, it is projected that the original form and appearance will be replicated, which ought to re-established the importance of the house in the streetscape.
