Appraisal
This late Victorian house forms part of a particularly fine formal terrace of four buildings that together constitute one of the finest examples of its type and date in Buncrana. Despite some modern alterations, this building retains its early form and character. Its complex irregular-form with canted bay window to the front elevation rising to form gable-fronted projection at second floor level with curvilinear gable helps to create varied composition. This building is also distinguished by the extensive and complex stucco detailing to the main elevations, which adds decorative interest and creates a visual stimulating building of some aesthetic appeal. Despite the unfortunate loss of its original fenestration, the overall proportions and form of this house are still very much evident. The curvilinear gable with ball finial over and the pronounced brick chimneystack add additional interest at roofscape level. This building originally dates from the period when Buncrana was a popular seaside resort, frequented by the middle classes of Derry, particularly following the opening of the railway line to the town in 1864. Its forms part of an interesting group of substantial houses and villas built to the west and south-west of Buncrana during the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century. It is suggested locally that the houses were built for the British Admiralty, at a time when Lough Swilly was an important naval anchorage. This building is an important element of the architectural heritage of Buncrana, and is an attractive feature in the streetscape to the west of the town centre. The good-quality wrought-iron railings and gate, and the rendered boundary wall, add to the setting and context, and complete this composition
