Appraisal

This impressive corner-sited building holds a commanding position in the centre of Cloghan. The imposing structure with its proportion, form and scale is enhanced by the regularly fenestrated six-over-six timber sash windows. The door opening with its decorative fanlight and timber panelled door, which is flanked by delicately detailed sidelights, creates an aesthetically pleasing entranceway, one which stands out within the terrace. This building, without question, plays an important role in the architectural heritage of Cloghan.
