The house is featured in the "Dublin Civic Trust" website as an excellent example of a Regency/Late Georgian house c. 1835 where they go on to say "These houses stood apart from more modest homes through their grander design and scale, classical proportions and level of detailing. These houses were considered ideal retreats for professionals from the city and can be found in areas such as Portobello . . ." - Dublin Civic Trust.
