Appraisal

This building shares a parapet height and fenestration arrangement with its neighbouring buildings, contributing positively to the horizontal aspect of the streetscape. The enriched fa├žade has significant street presence, with the shopfront providing contextual interest, and the fascia over the first floor indicating an earlier commercial use. The Dublin street directory of 1862 lists this as being a lodging-house, proprietor Mary Anne Stewart.
