Replacement hipped slate roof with angled ridge and hip tiles, concealed by rendered parapet with granite coping. Parapet gutters. Unpainted rendered walling to upper floors. Square-headed window openings, diminishing in size to top floor, with plain reveals, granite sills, and replacement tripartite six-over-six pane timber sliding sash windows with two-over-two sidelights. Ground floor has square-headed entrance doorway, having moulded reconstituted stone surround with decorative key block, and replacement panelled timber door.
Dublin Civic Trust's 'Survey of Gable-Fronted and Other Early Buildings of Dublin' states, 'The mid twentieth-century façade of this former house and its neighbour at No.87 is likely to conceal an early eighteenth-century house, the roof plan being the only external indicator of this typology. The house had an extensive section of raised and fielded panelling and a staircase of c.1730 removed in 1990.' Together with the neighbouring building, the pair is an interesting addition to the street's historic character.
