Appraisal

An elegantly-proportioned house, built as one of a terrace of three identical houses, which retains its original form. Extensively renovated to accommodate an alternative use, the replacement fittings allude to early or original models, yet are fashioned with inappropriate modern materials. The house, together with the remainder in the terrace (22504400 - 1/WD-5632-22-385 - 384), forms an attractive, compact group in the streetscape of Parnell Street.
