Appraisal

This mid-Georgian building retains much of its early form and design, and fabric such as timber sash windows which lend a patina of age. The decreasing scale of fenestration creates a well-balanced fa├žade, and the reception rooms distinguished by their larger window openings. This house forms part of a group of buildings of a similar age, which, with their similar fenestration arrangements, bring a pleasing uniformity to the streetscape. Thom's Directory of 1862 lists it as the property of Perrin & Goodbody, Aerated Bread, indicating that there is a long commercial history associated with this site.
