Description
Pair of semi-detached two-bay two-storey former gate lodges, built c.1825, now in use as a detached private dwelling. Roughcast rendered walls. Pitched slate roof with terracotta ridge cresting and angled brick chimneystacks. Carved timber bargeboard with finials to gables and dormer windows. Diamond pane windows with stone sills, having recessed panels, two with label mouldings to ground floor.

Appraisal

This former pair of gate lodges exhibit a high level of architectural and artistic detailing. Embellishments include the label mouldings, elaborately carved bargeboard, and the picturesque diamond pane windows. The former gate lodges form part of a group of demesne structures with Moynalty House, outbuildings and entrance gates. This pair was designed as part of the planned estate village of Moynalty in the 1820s, and is similar in execution and detailing to many of the buildings in the village.
