Appraisal

A dilapidated house representing an integral component of the early twentieth-century built heritage of Ballycarra. A prolonged period of unoccupancy notwithstanding, the elementary form and massing survive intact together with quantities of the historic or original fabric, both to the exterior and to the interior, including a Classically-composed shopfront of artistic interest making a pleasing visual statement in a rural village street scene at street level.
