Appraisal

This Georgian townhouse terminates the north end of the terrace that runs from Parnell Square East to Hardwicke Street. Smaller in scale than its neighbours, the building retains its doorcase and fenestration pattern while playing its part in retaining the Georgian scale and character of the streetscape. It also retains the stone landing and steps and iron railways to the entrance and thus contributes to the interest and intactness of the streetscape.
