Appraisal

This modest house is of apparent architectural design and detailing and is a picturesque addition to the surrounding landscape. It retains its original fabric, such as the slate roof, timber sash windows and limestone masonry. This former estate worker's house forms part of a group of demesne related structures, with Dunsany Castle, stables, outbuildings, gate lodges and with the three houses located at Dunsany Crossroads.
