This paired Georgian townhouse, one bay wider than its counterpart, similarly retains a wealth of original fabric including rusticated stone to ground floor, an unusual sandstone platform and decorative ironmongery. Forming part of a terrace laid out by Luke Gardiner II for the Wide Street Commissioners, this building presents an original aspect to the street, and together with being the site of Harry Clarke's studio is of historic, cultural as well as architectural importance to the city.
