Appraisal

Talbot Street was laid out in the 1840s, following the sale of Tyrone House. This building forms part of a relatively uniform terrace with a shared parapet height and fenestration pattern. Simply composed, it has a regularity of design and proportion and additional interest is provided by the presence of a carriage arch, providing access to the rear of the site.
