Appraisal

An appealing, small-scale house, remodelled to ground floor but otherwise retaining most of its original form and massing, together with important salient features and materials, thereby enhancing the historic appeal of the streetscape. The retention of an early commercial interior, including a cast-iron supporting pillar, significantly augments the importance of the site as an integral component of the architectural heritage of Dunmore East.
