Appraisal

A fine, well-proportioned middle-size house retaining most of its original form and early fabric to the upper floors, and which contributes to the historic flavour of the street scene of O'Connell Street. The house is of additional significance for its associations with an early nineteenth-century urban planning project initiated by the Duke of Devonshire, centred on Grattan Square.
