The house has a shallower plan than the remaining houses on the terrace and has suffered many nineteenth and twentieth-century changes including the loss of the principal staircase.

It is currently owned by the Daughters Of Charity so I suppose that it is a convent or a nunnery. St. Marys Day Nursery is located here.
