A late Georgian former house, likely built as a pair with No. 35 and converted to offices. The building retains the well-balanced proportions and graded fenestration pattern typical of the period and is enriched with a pretty doorcase featuring garlands and ribbons, Ionic columns and a decorative entablature. With its intact setting details, No. 36 makes a strong contribution to the historic and largely cohesive character of Baggot Street, which has been fairly well retained along this northeast stretch. Development of Baggot Street began at the west end in the late eighteenth century, but was slow due to the recession at that time; however by the mid-nineteenth century the street had developed into a thriving residential thoroughfare. Due to this staggered development there are many signs of speculative building, including variation in levels, materials and detailing.
