Marlborough Street was opened c.1700 and developed by the Moore family, the Earls of Drogheda. This terraced house may have a late seventeenth or early eighteenth-century core, as evidenced by the floor plan and roof configuration. Now in commercial use, the nineteenth-century façade presents a standard Georgian appearance of modest scale and greatly enhances the character and appearance of the streetscape.
