Round-headed door opening with moulded render surround and carved stone doorcase comprising Ionic columns and entablature. Leaded fanlight and timber panelled door.

Part of a uniform terrace, this building maintains the parapet height and fenestration alignment of neighbouring buildings to the north, making a pleasing contribution to the streetscape. Salient features are retained, notably a well-executed Ionic doorcase, which are integral to the historic character, and contribute to the composition's grandeur. The road leading from St. Stephen's Green to Donnybrook was originally called Suesey Street. It was renamed Leeson Street in 1728 to commemorate the Leeson brewing family, who were responsible for significant development in the area. Some Early Georgian houses remain but construction predominantly dates from the late eighteenth to mid-nineteenth centuries.
