Appraisal

Brosna House, situated on the roadside leading to the small village of Brosna, is a fine example of an early nineteenth-century house. Its classical proportions displayed in its symmetrical façade and door openings together with the survival of many original features contribute to the character of the house. The cast-iron spear-headed railings and elegant door surround create an inviting and appealing entrance. The house is a notable feature in the streetscape of Brosna.
