The house was built as part of a terrace to accommodate officers of the nearby cavalry barracks and represents a planned and deliberate approach to urban design, typical for military facilities, and not found elsewhere in Belturbet. The historic configuration, formerly with the entrance front set perpendicular to the street, remains apparent. With the adjoining terrace and the officer's houses beside the remains of the barracks complex, it is an important part of the town's military heritage.
