Appraisal

This house was built as one of a terrace of houses by the Bath Estate and originally named Weymouth Cottages. The well executed and finely carved limestone façade and date plaque is representative of fine craftsmanship. The survival of original features and fabric enhances the structure, making it a fine contributor to the architectural heritage of Carrickmacross.
