Appraisal

This outbuilding formerly related to the house to the site, and is linked by to the house by a screen wall. The architectural blind arcading of the south gable complements the setting of the house, and is a unifying features of the group. This outbuilding was built as part of the formally planned eighteenth-century estate village as devised by Viscount Conyngham, who stipulated the form and materials to be used in the construction of the village. This outbuilding together with the main house, gates and related outbuilding form an interesting architectural group, which is repeated by on the remaining three sides of the square.
