Dublin Civic Trust's 'Survey of Gable-Fronted and Other Early Buildings of Dublin City,' 2012, states 'Laid out in the 1690s lined with terraces of probably gable-fronted houses, Meath Street was substantially rebuilt during the late nineteenth and early twentieth-centuries. This former townhouse remains as one of the few possible survivors from this early period. Although refaced during the late nineteenth-century, the building retains the diminutive proportions and fa├žade composition of a former gabled house, as well as a relatively steeply pitched roof and rear elevation fenestration characteristic of the early eighteenth-century.'
