This late Georgian townhouse terminates the eastern end of a terrace of ten similar houses on Sherrard Street Upper. With largely two-bay houses to the remainder of the terrace, this three-bay house stands out in the streetscape. It retains an intact doorcase and wrought-iron balconettes which add a decorative element. The street was named after the surveyor and clerk of the Wide Streets Commission, Thomas Sherrard, and was originally part of the Gardiner Estate. The building shares a parapet height and fenestration pattern with the rest of the terrace, thus maintaining a sense of uniformity throughout.
