Appraisal

A house regarded as an integral component of the domestic built heritage of Ballina. Having been well maintained, the elementary form and massing survive intact together with quantities of the original fabric, both to the exterior and to the interior where contemporary joinery; and sleek plasterwork refinements, all highlight the artistic potential of a house forming part of a neat self-contained ensemble making a pleasing visual statement in Pearse Street.
