A pleasant, well-proportioned middle-size house occupying a prominent corner site. Although now disused, the house retains its original form and massing, together with a range of important salient features and materials, contributing to the historic quality of the composition. The rendered pubfront, conforming to an Irish traditional model, is of some artistic design merit, and significantly enhances the visual appeal of the street scene at street level.
