Appraisal

This house was built as a pair with the house to the north. 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 stained glass fanlight was designed by the artist Evie Hone who was a visitor to the adjoining house.
