Appraisal

The surroundings of this elegant Georgian terrace were much altered by the arrival of the Dublin and Drogheda railway, later the Great Northern Railway line, which now terminates the street. The balanced proportions of the front fa├žade are characteristic of this period. The survival of much early fabric contributes greatly to its architectural heritage significance while the very fine Adamesque doorcase is of particular note.
