Red brick walls laid in Flemish bond, with red brick engaged pilaster to east of façade, having granite ball finial on square plinth base to top.

Square-headed door opening to west of shopfront having timber panelled door.

Appraisal

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. It also forms part of a pair, together prominently sited at the junction of Talbot Street and Marlborough Street. It maintains the parapet height and fenestration rhythm of the street, the design of the window openings and the retention of timber sash windows adding architectural interest to the façade and the streetscape.
