Round-headed doorway with brick voussoirs, patent reveals, plain fanlight and painted masonry doorcase with engaged Ionic columns, fluted entablature, and timber eight-panel door with raised-and-fielded panels below locking rail and glazed leaded panels above, accessed by flight of eight stone steps flanked by rendered masonry walls with stone copings, that to north forming boundary wall to adjacent property and topped by wrought-iron railings with decorative hops and finials. Garden to front, enclosed by plinth wall having wrought-iron railings with hoops and decorative palmette finials; full-height wrought-iron pedestrian gate with flat iron overthrow and cast-iron piers inset with repeated palmette motif, and having masonry pier shared with adjoining building.

An elegant terraced house terminating the north end of a group of three late eighteenth-century houses on the west side of Drumcondra Road, and attached to a later Georgian terrace to the south with a lower parapet height and set back behind a tree-lined buffer that separates them from the busy main thoroughfare. The terrace is 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 distinctive decorative full-height wrought-iron gates and railings enclosing the front form a particularly notable feature of both groups of buildings. Together they make a strong contribution to the architectural quality and variety of the Drumcondra area.
