A Georgian-style house, forming part of a well-retained pair on Warrington Place. It features a good Scamozzian doorcase and decorative cast-iron railings and balconettes. It, and the other houses in the terrace, are characterized by well-balanced proportions typical of the period, contributing strongly to the character of the streetscape along the Grand Canal and to the architectural heritage of south Dublin. Warrington Place was laid out 1791, but built in the early nineteenth century.
