Appraisal

This well-built house is one of the large number of single and two-storey houses constructed to the east of the Broadstone branch of the Royal Canal in the late-nineteenth century. No. 6 is one of a pair of larger two-storey houses terminating the terrace on the south side of Sarsfield Street. The attractive frontage is ornamented with polychromatic brick dressings, a defining feature of Victorian domestic architecture, and making a positive contribution to the streetscape. Craftsmanship is evident in the design of the cast-iron railings.
