Timber sliding sash windows to top floor and one opening to second floor, three-over-six pane to former and six-over-over-six pane to latter, timber casements to other second floor window, and replacement uPVC windows to first floor.

Appraisal

The rendered façade of this building provides a textural contrast to the terrace as a whole. It is articulated and enlivened through the use of render detailing such as moulded architrave surrounds, pedimented windows to the first floor, and the panelled pilaster framing one end of the facade. The building forms part of a terrace lining the north side of Talbot Street which was laid out following the sale of Tyrone House in the 1840s. The retention of some timber sash windows enhances the building.
