Lined-and-ruled rendered wall with panelled render engaged pilaster to east of façade. Diminishing square-headed window openings with masonry sills, moulded masonry shouldered-and-kneed architrave surrounds and replacement uPVC windows to second and third floors.

Recent shopfront to ground floor comprising engaged pilasters on plinth bases, plain fascia over recent square-headed glazed window and door openings.

Appraisal

This modest house forms an important part of a terrace lining the north side of Talbot Street, which was laid out in the 1840s following the sale of Tyrone House. Its rendered façade is enlivened by moulded window surrounds, in particular the pedimented hood-mouldings to the first floor, and panelled render pilasters. The decorative, albeit slightly damaged, façade, provides a contrast to the predominantly red brick terrace.
