Decorative wrought-iron balconettes to first floor, cast-iron grille to basement. Gauged brick round-headed door opening with masonry Doric doorcase comprising square-headed door opening flanked by fluted Doric columns supporting panelled lintel entablature with replacement applied lead fanlight. Original timber panelled door with eleven raised-and-fielded panels and brass furniture opening onto granite platform and granite steps. Platform and basement enclosed by original wrought- and cast-iron railings set on granite plinth wall with steel steps providing access to basement, with glazed timber door below platform. Forming part of a continuous terrace of former townhouses lining west side of Fitzwilliam Street Upper. Two-storey painted rubble stone former coach house lining west boundary on Pembroke Lane, with pitched slate roof and brick lined openings including former elliptical-headed carriage-arch with sheeted timber sliding vehicular door.


A handsome terraced early-nineteenth century former townhouse retaining its original façade composition and much historic external fabric, including sash windows and well-executed ironwork. The granite dressings contrast with the mellow brick, adding colour and textural interest, while the fine Doric doorcase forms the decorative focus. It forms part of a long terrace of former residences and contributes significantly to the coherent appearance of the streetscape in the heart of the south Georgian core.
