Appraisal

A fine, well-proportioned middle-size house, built as one of a pair (with 22821093/WD-31-21-93), which has been very well maintained, retaining its original form and early fabric throughout. Of particular interest is the pubfront to ground floor, which conforms to an Irish traditional model, and which is of artistic design quality. The house makes a positive contribution to the visual appeal of the street scene, and is of additional importance on account of its associations with an early nineteenth-century urban planning project initiated by the Duke of Devonshire, centred on Grattan (originally Market) Square.
