Appraisal

This house was built as a pair with the house to the south. These houses were built in the mid to late eighteenth-century as part of the planned estate town of Slane. They were constructed using local limestone and have some fine door and window surrounds. The building retains many interesting features and materials, such as the timber sash windows, and the cast-iron fanlight.
