Appraisal

A modest-scale, late-Georgian house, which retains most of its original form to the upper floors, together with some important early salient features and materials. The shopfront, which has been modelled on a traditional Irish type, has been installed in keeping with the original integrity of the design, and enhances the visual appeal of the composition at street level. The house is an important component of the streetscape, and contributes to the historic character of The Mall.
