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.
