Description

Terraced two-bay four-storey house, built, c.1750, as one of pair, with shopfront to ground floor. Not currently in use. Slate roof, hipped to front (east) elevation and angled red brick chimneystack shared with neighbouring house. Roof hidden behind ruled-and-lined rendered parapet wall with granite coping and cast-iron rainwater goods to front. Ruled-and-lined rendered walls. Square-headed window openings having painted masonry sills and replacement timber sliding sash windows. Replacement shopfront to ground floor with roller shutters and full-span fascia.

Appraisal

Marlborough Street was opened c.1700 and developed by the Moore family, 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 fa├žade presents a standard Georgian appearance of modest scale and greatly enhances the character and appearance of the streetscape.
