A fine Georgian-style former townhouse, built as one of a pair with No. 44. According to Casey (2005) they have some of the richest interiors in Fitzwilliam Place, and with 'cast-iron stair balustrades and the rooms on the first-half landings have engaged columns and charming original painted-glass panels.’ Characterised by restrained external detailing, vertical massing and well-balanced proportions, the pair forms an integral part of Fitzwilliam Place. The retention of the boundary cast-iron railings and curved granite steps serve to enrich and further enhance the street setting. Although the streetscape is largely cohesive in appearance, slight variations between the groups of houses on Fitzwilliam Place is illustrative of the incremental nature of speculative development during this period.
