A well-proportioned house forming an integral component of an early nineteenth-century urban planning project initiated by the Duke of Devonshire centred on Grattan (originally Market) Square. Reasonably well maintained, the house retains its original form and massing, with early fabric intact to the upper floors, which contributes to the historic character of the site. The replacement shopfront to ground floor, while alluding to a traditional model, is marred by a prominent shutter box.
