Laid out by Gardiner in the 1790s as part of the development of Mountjoy Square and the Gardiner Estate, this section of Gardiner Street Lower was not completed until about 1840 but still using the predominant Georgian style. Despite the loss of much external fabric, the house retains its doorcase, decorative ironmongery and overall composition and forms a component part of this intact stretch of late Georgian townhouses.
