An elegant house terminating the north end of a group of three late eighteenth-century houses on the west side of Drumcondra Road, set back behind a tree-lined buffer that separates them from the busy main thoroughfare, and flanked by later attached buildings at either end. The terrace is highly representative of the style and proportions of Georgian residential building in Dublin, although it is distinguished from the generally later nineteenth-century urban grain of the Drumcondra suburbs. The decorative ironwork enclosing the boundary is a particularly attractive feature of this group of buildings.
