Appraisal

Built as one of a pair and forming part of a long terrace of houses continuing the scale associated with Parnell Square, this building retains an elaborate doorcase with a fine fanlight. It also retains the stone steps and landing to the entrance area and the stone plinth and iron railings and gate to the basement area, thus contributing significantly to the intactness of the streetscape.
